Haunted House in New York City for Halloween

359 Broadway, New York, NY 10013
(212) 290- 2825


Happy almost October 1st!! 

This year I'm super excited to be celebrating Halloween with my friends and family. Wear fun costumes, take the kids trick-or-treating and take lots of photos. After all the celebration only comes once a year. 

This year I wanted to do something I've never done before so I decided to accept an invitation to visit Blood Manor. If you're not familiar, Blood Manor is an interactive haunted house where groups of 5-6 people walk through rooms getting frighten by professional actors who look like they just came out of a horror movie. If you love the thrill of getting scared, then you'll love this. It's opening weekend right now!!

The recommended age to attend the show is 14 years and up. Believe me it's not for the faint of heart.
You can purchase tickets at or at the door. Watch my experience here


¡¡Feliz casi primero de octubre!!

Este año estoy súper emocionada de celebrar Halloween con mis amigos y familiares. Ponernos disfraces divertidos, llevar a los niños a pedir dulces y tomar muchas fotos. Después de todo, la celebración solo llega una vez al año.

Este año quería hacer algo que nunca antes había hecho, así que decidí aceptar una invitación para visitar Blood Manor. Si no está familiarizado, Blood Manor es una casa embrujada interactiva donde grupos de 5 a 6 personas caminan por las habitaciones asustándose por actores profesionales que parecen recién salidos de una película de terror. Si te encanta la emoción de asustarte, entonces te encantará esto. ¡Es el fin de semana de apertura ahora mismo!

La edad recomendada para asistir al espectáculo es de 14 años en adelante. Créeme, no es para los débiles de corazón. Puedes comprar boletos en o en la puerta.

 A message from our editor: Johnnybell 

I find it so fascinating how I've been able to share my life through photos and text for almost 11 years. That's how long I've had this blog for. NYTM started as a fun little hobby and has become an extension of my life. You've seen my family and myself grow for over a decade. You were there when I moved from Astoria. You were there when I found out I was pregnant with James. You were there when I bought my first house. You were there when I launched Shop Johnnybell. You continue to support me with every single collaboration I take on. That will always blow my mind! Thank you for sticking around even through my inconsistency on here. These past four years have been the most challenging in my life as becoming a mother for the third time after so many years can feel like the very first time. 

As school is back in session and James has entered pre-K, I finally have free time to hop back into blogging. You might remember I attempted to do this a few months back but wasn't able to maintain a consistent schedule due to the lack of down time. 

In pure transparency, having 6+ hours to myself now that he's in school feels like a breath of fresh air. MY GOD! I forgot what it felt like to actually desire to write and want to create content out of pure desire not obligation. It's so gratifying.

Thank you for continuing to show up for me. I love my community. I love you.
