Got your fun size Snickers and M&Ms ready, folks? In a new index released by The Atlantic Cities, New York came in second in the country for trick-or-treating.
The top spot went to our Fairfield County neighbors, though the New York metropolitan area (New York – Northern NJ – Long Island) did edge out L.A. this year, which dropped to 7th place, according to the article. Rounding out the top three: Chicago-Naperville-Joliet, Il- In -Wi.
Criteria for the 2011 “Trick-or-Treater Index,” included, among others, the number of kids between the ages of 5 and 14 in the area, income and “creative spirit (which we measured as the percentage of artists, designers, and other cultural creatives),” writes Richard Florida.

So we wondered: How is your specific neighborhood when it comes to trick or treating? Is it full of kids or are you just left with a bowl full of Kit Kats for weeks to come?
And tell us, what do you think makes a place great for trick or treaters?
