Chinatown Trick-or-Streets (10/31/23)

The Chinatown BID is delighted to partner with NYC DOT to host “Trick or Streets” 2023 as it returns for the second season.

“Trick or Streets” 2022 was a huge success as it brought together the communities and provided a first ever Halloween experience in Chinatown. As the tradition continues, the Chinatown BID aims to mark the second annual of “Trick or Streets” as distinguishable by not only bringing local residents and youths to enjoy this car-free Halloween experience safely, but also to further promote local businesses and the Chinatown community as a whole. Utilizing open spaces in Chinatown spread the awareness of diversity and cultural tolerance.
