Nyack, South Nyack to Enact Halloween Curfew

Sandy's wake has officials urging parents and children to stay indoors from 6 p.m. onward

Nyack, South Nyack to Enact Halloween Curfew

 

Youngsters and parents hoping for a Halloween this year will have to hit the streets early.

"The real goal is to keep kids off the streets and safe," said White. "Kids need to be supervised at all times. Some of these wires are hard to see."

"Use common sense and be aware of yourself and surroundings," said Carlucci.

The villages of Nyack and South Nyack have both enacted curfews in the wake of Sandy, hoping to keep children off roads that are littered with debris and downed wires.

Both villages are calling for folks to get off local streets and into their homes by 6 p.m. Wednesday night.

"Please do not take children out trick-or-treating this afternoon or evening," Nyack mayor Jen Laird-White penned on the government's website. "The village will schedule an event for children after we get through the storm clean up."

Nyack's curfew expires at 5 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 1.

South Nyack Mayor Patricia DuBow and South Nyack-Grand View Police chief are asking residents who venture out before 6 p.m. to follow two rules: all children must be with adults, and no trick-or-treating on secondary roads.

"If the police department or highway/DPW department has deployed barricades to detour traffic, do not pass the barricades on foot," Van Cura said.

Piermont has suspended all trick-or-treating, as well.

In other portions of Orangetown, officials are asking residents to postpone Halloween activities until Saturday.
