Anyone who’s ever had to go to the DMV on Commerce Ave. knows how creepy of a walk it is, like “Seriously, where the hell is this place?” (and this is why I haven’t gone to get my permit yet, not procrastination or anything…)
This makes it the perfect location for a haunted house – enter Nightmare Z-Day. Housed in what looks like an old car repair shop, I must say that it’s one of my favorite haunted houses I’ve been to. It’s also the only one I’ve been to where the characters actually interact with you, but I won’t say much else so I don’t ruin the experience.
The set-up was really creative and the make-up amazing. I love all of the work that went into it and hope it returns next year.
You’re not allowed to take pictures, but I did take a couple while I was on line. Check them out below!
On a completely unrelated note, more restaurants were added to the Savor the Bronx line-up, including some in City Island and Little Italy. Now I really don’t know where I’m going to go!
So, today I learned that the classic, annual Nightmare haunted house will be held in the Bronx this year – by Westchester Sq. to be precise. I am beyond excited for a number of reasons:
1.When the hell do we ever have cool shit like this in the Bronx, let alone the east side? [Ed. Note: This is not to say that we don't already have cool shit, I'm simply referring to the scale of the event!]
2. Halloween is my favorite holiday (next to my birthday of course, which is Memorial Day). I plan my costumes about a year in advance and take planning it out very seriously. Plus, who doesn’t love AMC’s horror movie marathon?
3. This will give a huge financial boost to the area and is it just me or ever since that big fire a couple of years ago, there’s just been this strange void (aside from the obvious crater in the ground) in the area? We definitely need something to attract people over here that’s not the DMV.
This year’s theme is a zombie invasion and allegedly Commerce Ave. has been deemed “safe” for the time being until the zombies progress further south from Upstate. Click here to find out all the details.
