Hordes of Zombies Head To Harlem For Halloween

Thriller

The undead are making their way Uptown in droves for Halloween. They are not coming for the cheap rents, spacious apartments, awesome green spaces or the culture. No, they are headed to Harlem Shake (100 W. 124th St & Lenox Ave) for a flash mob dedicated to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, and his worldwide smash hit Thriller. The flash mob will begin at 8 pm but the rest of the festivities kick off at 6 pm.

WASHINGTON HEIGHTS — A local bar known for its arts programming and for providing a home for Uptown LGBT community events — including one inspired by extravagant drag balls held in Harlem 80 years ago — has closed its doors due to financial struggles, its owner said.

The Red Room Lounge, located at 1 Bennett Ave., shuttered this past Wednesday, owner Manuel Rosario said.

“It’s just the economy,” he said of the venue, which he opened in 2008. “I don’t like to feel like I’m surrendering, but this time I have to throw in the towel.”
