Enjoy this special look at the annual Halloween parade and trick or treating in Maplewood Village, created by local resident and executive producer at 9 Beach films.

“This little film is an homage to ‘In the Street,’ a film created in the early 1940s by the photographer, Helen Levitt, Janice Loeb and the writer, James Agee. Their film portrays urban children exploring their imaginary worlds and reveling in the freedom to express their exuberance on the neighborhood streets that were their playgrounds.”

A message regarding Coda Kitchen & Bar

A special message from our friends at Coda Kitchen & Bar, Keller Williams Midtown Direct and The Maplewood Village Alliance.

In the aftermath of a restaurant construction collapse that killed one man and seriously injured another, residents and businesses in Maplewood are quickly organizing to aid the families of those men.

Keller Williams Midtown Direct Realty will be partnering with the Maplewood Village Alliance to establish a fund to collect donations in support of the family of the deceased. There is an immediate need for funds to pay for the funeral expenses. Information on how to donate can be found below.

For details on the fund, please contact Julie Doran at the Village Alliance at or Reed Kean from Keller Williams at

Additionally, the Village Alliance’s annual “Girl’s Night Out” will take place this Thursday evening where TIP JARS will be provided to collect donations for the staff of CODA, as financial aid to the waiters, bartenders, and other employees, while the rebuilding of the restaurant takes place. Event details here: Girls Night Out

Co-owners Bradley Takahashi and Luke Finn have issued this statement from the Coda family:

“As you know, a tragic accident occurred last week at Coda. We are devastated by the injuries and the loss of life and our hearts go out to the affected families. We also want to thank the dozens of emergency workers who came to our aid. We will never forget their bravery, professionalism, and compassion. We also appreciate the outpouring of love and support from the community during this trying time and we look forward to serving you again as soon possible.”
