This display stands outside a funeral home near the border of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow. Apart from the usual Halloween symbols (Jack-o-lanterns, scarecrows etc.) it depicts the headless horseman from Washing Irving‘s famous story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow“.

Because of its association with Washington Irving (who lived in the neighboring town of Irvington, NY) and “The legend…” Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow is pretty much ground zero for Hallowe’en in the US.
