Village Halloween Parade to go on

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

No one could be happier than the owner of the Village Party Store and other costume shops that the Village Halloween Parade is going forward.

Varun Penday said the shop really suffered when the 2012 parade was cancelled because of Superstorm Sandy. He said the parade drives at least 50 to 80 percent of the store's business.

The Village Halloween Parade has a long tradition and a reputation for the spooky and often outrageous disguises.

Superstorm Sandy forced parade organizers to cancel it for the first time. The nonprofit group said it lost a lot of money that had to be paid up front.

So the parade was in jeopardy of being cancelled again. So an online Kickstarter campaign was launched to raise money. It worked, and now the parade will go on.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?

    If an iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts is part of your afternoon routine, expect a nudge to buy a cookie or doughnut you didn't plan on. Dunkin' Brands CEO Nigel Travis said in a phone interview Thursday that the company is pushing to get its cashiers to "upsell" to afternoon customers. It's part of an effort to increase sales after stores have emptied out after the morning rush.
