SLEEPY HOLLOW, NEW YORK: School teacher, Ichabod Crane, is being chased by the “Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow” thought to be Brom Bones, the town bully. Legend tells of the Headless Horseman ridingĀ  every midnight, carrying a flaming pumpkin and sword. He would look for victims walking and cut off their heads. The only way to escape his attacks was to cross the old bridge, past the Old Dutch Church, at the edge of town.
