Go Pumpkin Picking
Sure, you could buy your pumpkins at the Greenmarket
, but wouldn't it be more fun to pick them from the farm yourself? There are dozens of farms just a short train ride away Upstate
or on Long Island
that let you traverse the pumpkin patch to pick your own, but if you don't want to leave the five boroughs, you can head to Decker Farm on Staten Island
. Every Saturday and Sunday until Halloween, the historic farm lets you pick out your own pumpkins
and you can take a guided tour of the 1800s farmhouse. Located in Historic Richmond Town
, the land is the oldest continually farmed site in NYC.
