For decades, Hunt's Point was known as the dumping site of the East Coast.  But a number of South Bronx groups, New York City agencies and community activists are transforming the area into a relaxing recreation zone.

All this week WFUV News has been introducing you to people who can't get enough of Broadway. Groupies if you will. People who spend thousands of dollars to see their favorite shows again and again and again. But, some theater enthusiasts aren't about to empty their bank account to see a show. So they wait in long lines the day of a performance for discounted seats. These rush tickets cost much less than the regular price.

Halloween gives everyone an excuse to enjoy some delicious candy and dress up in fun costumes. While New York City may not offer some of the traditional trick-or-treating that suburbs do, there are still great places to go to take the kids for candy. [AM NY]

Halloween may be a few weeks way, but some dogs already got in the holiday spirit over the past weekend. The annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade brought out some clever costume ideas. For those who didn't get the opportunity to check it out, fortunately there were some people on hand to grab some pictures. [Gothamist]

Haunted houses can be lame, so why not take a different approach this Halloween season? The New York Botanical Garden is hosting a Haunted Pumpkin Garden. There are also pumpkin carving sessions for those looking to make a Jack-O-Latern. [Timeout NY]

San Francisco might soon be celebrating their third World Series title in the past five years. The Giants lead the best-of-seven series 3-2, and tonight the team will have the opportunity to clinch the series and another championship. The Kansas City Royals will hope to keep the series alive as they host game six. The Royals have not won a World Series title since 1985 and that team knows the feeling of being one game away from elimination. The '85 Royals were down 3-2 in the series to the St. Louis Cardinals, but they then captured games 6 and 7 for the title.
