It’s that time of the year when stoops and facades are adorned with pumpkins and all sorts of Halloween oddities, foreshadowing Halloween night.

It is expected this year that Americans will spend a record $9.1 billion on Halloween, of which $2.7 billion is expected to be spent on decorations, according to the National Retail Federation’s annual survey.

A walk through Dyker Heights, a neighborhood also known for its Christmas decorations, brings the figures to reality and shows the importance the holiday holds for some people.

At 79th Street between 11th and 12th avenues, stands “Dyker Frights.” Property owner Anthony George created the authentic horror movie scene with various decorations.
