Photos: Halloween On Wall Street, 2012

As I got closer, I saw downtown Manhattan almost entirely lit by headlights of passing cars.

The streets were empty. The Municipal Building had a gothic, Dark Knight vibe.

The New York Stock Exchange, which has been running on generator power, had some Halloween-themed lighting. But it felt more spooky than festive.
