This Guy In an Astor Place Cube Costume Won Halloween

New, 5 comments

The Astor Place Cube—apparently named Alamo—has been missing from its perch at the intersection of Lafayette Street while road work in the area is ongoing, but the cube made a triumphant, if temporary, return on Halloween—sort of. Enter this champion of Halloween pictured above, who posed as the cube for what appears to be the better part of the night. Photos posted by EV Grieve and Gothamist via Reddit show the Halloween Hero posing as day becomes night, and appreciative passers-by gawk and giggle. Unlike other activities, this, folks, is Halloween done right.
