editor's pick: i love new york
this halloween go as our favorite fictional new yorkers.
From Annie Hall to Spiderman, New York City has played home to a myriad of cool costume inspirations. I mean, Elaine Benes is from New York! But so is Margot Tenenbaum. And Carrie Bradshaw. And Rachel Green... I could go on for days, but instead I've compiled all my options in the gallery below.
So please Tweet me which fake New Yorker is your favorite to help me decide what my costume should be. Or maybe I can just wear this gold plated New York necklace and go as them all!
