This is a first for the NYC Zombie Crawl that the whole event is all ages…and the best part is there will still be booze if you are over 21!  Before the afterparty there is a free meet and greet with ‘Play Dead‘ author Ryan Brown as well as the cast and crew of ‘Play Dead: The Movie“, and you can even buy copies of his book and have him sign it!
