Something about walking into a Halloween store makes you feel like a kid again. The almost overwhelmingly large costume selection brings up old memories of trick or treating from decades past. You may remember going door-to-door begging for candy from neighbors, or sitting for hours while your mom applied face paint to make you a clown. One Halloween store in New York that is sure to bring back all kinds of memories is Arlene’s Costumes in Rochester. It’s been open since 1955 and has been delighting New Yorkers for over half a century.
