Photos: The best of Pittsburgh’s Halloween side(walk) show

Did any of your neighbors make our list?

Pittsburgh neighborhoods are a bit frightening this time of year. Many streets are strung together with spiderwebs, skeletons and ghosts in celebration of Halloween. Neighbors without yards get creative by decorating their porches, stoops and doors.

If you see any festive Halloween displays, tag us on Instagram (@theinclinepgh and #theinclinepgh) to be featured in our daily newsletter. (Which you can sign up for here.)

We swung by neighborhoods across the city to find some of the best displays. Here are a few:

Polish Hill

Wonder what this mailman thought of his company on Melwood Avenue?

Nearby, a window display has a bit of everything: a bat, fuzzy spider … and, in peak 2016 Halloween decorating, a creepy clown.

Across the street, a skeleton emerges from a graveyard.

Stanton Heights

A home on Somerville St. in Stanton Heights transformed their lamp post into a jack-o’-lantern …

… and a skeleton hangs out at the edge of the driveway.

Is that tinsel, Second Avenue?

Lawrenceville

Two neighbors living in row homes on Plummer Street in Lawrenceville are among the stoop decorators …

Squirrel Hill

This Squirrel Hill home on Forbes Avenue has a pink flamingo lawn ornament worked into the spooky mix. Maybe it’s a zombie flamingo?

Greenfield

Spider webs cover other decorations from the ground to the roof of the porch at this house on Lydia Street in Greenfield.

Swisshelm Park

A property at the bottom of Commercial Street in Swisshelm Park is worth a drive-by. This festive motif features a pirate skeleton in the front yard graveyard, a ghoul hanging from a basketball net in the driveway and a jail-broken zombie relaxing on the porch.
