So another successful NYC Zombie Crawl has been completed, we had over 1000 zombies at the peak of the evening! Thanks for all those who crawled and bled with us as well as the Beauty Bar NYC, Continental, Arlene’s Grocery as well Angelo Moore, God’s Green Earth and of course Nassau Chainsaw DisGraCeLand Demolition Committee! We will have photos and video soon, in the meantime you can check out a NSFW gallery over at VillageVoice.com from our pal Nate ‘Igor’ Smith. Remember to upload all your pictures to Facebook and your ZombieBooth pictures to their Facebook page for our contest to win an iPhone 4S! (see below).
Also, check out some more photos from the Halloween 2011 NYC Zombie Crawl here!

Those who attended the event know that our dear friend and brother Spliff, the father of DisGraCeLand passed away the morning of the crawl after a year and 3 months of fighting his way back from a horrible car accident. Spliff has been with the NYC Zombie Crawl from the very beginning and DisGraCeLand has been a part of every event we’ve done. The news devastated everyone but we pulled through and performed for Spliff. All of the raffle proceeds and a portion of the profits and bar tabs will be going towards his funeral fund which is this Saturday. You can donate to the cause and help his family at the paypal link at this website.
