GUILDERLAND, N.Y. (WRGB) - A New York family has created a spectacularly spooky 50th anniversary tribute to the legendary Beatles album Abbey Road.
Jeff and Ellen Pitkin of Guilderland, New York, erected a Halloween-themed recreation of the Abbey Road album cover, which shows the four members of The Beatles crossing the famous London road.
In Pitkin's display, the four members of The Beatles are skeletons crossing a made-up crosswalk on the family's lawn. The skeletons even have hair matching what the Beatles wore on the album cover.
Jeff Pitkin says the Abbey Road display took about half a day to put together. He says reaction from adults in the neighborhood has been positive but some young kids may not understand what the display honors.
The Abbey Road display is just a small part of a larger set of Halloween displays that the Pitkins put out in the yard. The other decorations can take several days or weeks to put up, Jeff Pitkin said.
Abbey Road was released on September 26, 1969 and was a chart-topper around the world. It featured well-known tracks like "Come Together," "Something" and "Here Comes the Sun."
