Residents in Harlem’s Mount Morris Park Historic District are stepping up and volunteering their homes as safe spaces for children to trick-or-treat this Halloween. The event is called “Mount Morris Trick or Treat.”
More than 50 brownstones and apartments in the Mount Morris Park Historic District have signed up through the local community preservation and activist group, Mount Morris Park Community Improvement Association, designating their homes as safe spaces for children to dress up and collect candy this Halloween. It’s meant to not only ensure that kids don’t strike out in their search for sweets but also give parents peace of mind that their children will be safe.
The resident’s participation provides a route of homes from 124th to 117th Street, between Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard and Madison Avenue, for costumed kids to fill up their baskets with treats. MMPCIA is providing parents with a digital map of the exact locations of those homes on its website.
Trick-or-treating will occur next Tuesday, October 31st from 5 to 8 p.m. on Halloween night.
