Whoa! No Halloween hijinx in Sleepy Hollow

SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. (AP) — Police are poised to prevent any monstrous Halloween behavior in the New York village that hatched the Headless Horseman.Authorities in suburban Sleepy Hollow say they’ll disperse large

groups of teenagers, if necessary, and confiscate eggs and shaving


The area served as the backdrop for Washington Irving’s 1819

“Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” which depicts the Headless Horseman

charging after a terrified Ichabod Crane.

In both Sleepy Hollow and Mount Vernon, parents are being asked

to voluntarily have children under 17 at home by 8:30 p.m.

Elsewhere in Westchester County, Yonkers has a mandatory curfew.

It’s 10 p.m. for kids 11 and under; 10:30 p.m. ages 12 and 13; and

11 p.m. for ages 14 to 16.
