Local shops and restaurants tend to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters after school on Halloween itself (October 31). But before that, there are plenty of ways to make the holiday into a multi-day affair.
THREE REASONS THE LIVE WELL COMPANY ROCKS
Because the Live Well Company is a small, family-run business, you will always receive the attention and care that only a small business can offer. Moreover, we can do things differently. 1) There are no secret deals. All rates are always listed on our website. 2) We’re here to accommodate you, whether you want to train with one of our experienced personal trainers, have an awesome trainer of your own whom you’d like to bring in, or just work out on your own. 3) You can do a day pass, monthly pass, or a month-to-month membership with no contract. Come check us out: We’re right in the neighborhood—and have been for the past 14 years! 256 West St. (between Vestry and Laight), 212-431-5752; thelivewellcompany.com. Sponsored.
