Hell Gate Horror was ... well ... horrifying ..

Neighborhood Halloween House Includes Plenty of Theater & Imagination

October 24, 2015 / Astoria Neighborhood / Ethnic & Religious Culture & Holidays in Queens / Queens Buzz.

It was a hauntingly calm evening as I dared to return to the haunted Hell Gate Horror of Astoria. It was a century ago that the Hell Gate Bridge was nearing completion over the East River and the thought of what happened last year had raised the hair on my back as I approached.

This year I decided to take along a video camera so that what I might miss with my own eyes might be captured in the video. But alas, it was so dark, that even the camera couldn't keep pace with the spirits and ghosts hovering under the Hell Gate Bridge on this haunted horrifying evening.

They say a picture says a thousand words, so with that I'll let you take the journey into the Hell Gate Horror of Astoria yourself. If you click into the story we did last year and compare it to the video this year, you'll see they freshen it up with new themes, back drops and costumes. Boo.

And I get scared just thinking about what they may do next year which is the centennial year of the completion of the Hell Gate Bridge in Astoria.
