Mayor de Blasio Promises Halloween Crackdown


Mayor Bill de Blasio is telling New Yorkers to avoid large gatherings on Halloween.

“If people want to trick or treat outdoors, small groups with masks on? That's great. Big gatherings, parties. That's not great at all,” de Blasio said.

That means no costume parties or any other Halloween celebrations. The mayor said the city would enforce the restrictions.

“If we find out about them, we're going to have to break them up because it's dangerous. We got to buckle down,” de Blasio said.
