Don’t boo 👻, vote 🗳! Happy Halloween everyone! Special thanks to all the NY-14 families who came out to celebrate our first-ever community Halloween party. As a Parkchester resident, I’ve always seen children trick-or-treating at local businesses year after year, since sometimes its hard to trick or treat in apartment buildings. I wanted to create a place for them to cap off their travels, and that’s where we came up with the idea for our first-ever neighborhood Halloween party! It was a smashing success, all thanks to local community organizations like @lovingthebronx who came together and brought games + activities for children to enjoy. It was great, we made a lot of pumpkins and candy apples, and reminded everyone to VOTE this Tuesday to boot! . 📸: @coreytorpiephotography

Ocasio- Cortez ahora es la mujer más joven en ocupar un escaño en el Congreso de los Estados Unidos y hasta hace poco destacaba como bartender en el restaurante FlatsFix Mexican en Union Square, Nueva York.
