Headless Horseman Returns to NY Village

Breaking News

The Headless Horseman and Ichabod Crane returned to Sleepy Hollow for Halloween, and this time they won't disappear afterward into the mists of legend.

Just in time to frighten young trick-or-treaters, an 18-foot-high steel sculpture of the Horseman and his gangly patsy was erected Tuesday alongside Route 9, not far from the grave of Washington Irving, author of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow."

A cheer rose from a crowd of about 50 as the rust-colored structure was lowered into place. Two small dogs in pumpkin costumes joined the celebration.
