Posted earlier that Riverside Park is officially reopening on Saturday (Central Park, too). In poking around the Riverside Park Fund’s website, I just discovered their annual Halloween Parade that was canceled by Superstorm Sandy has been rescheduled for the late afternoon tomorrow (Saturday, 11/3).
