This was amazing. Went by bus to all the famous people in the rich Dyker Heights area. The tour guide has music on the way on the bus and you see many houses and you get to get off the bus and walk around and take pics. It ends at a local restaurant where they give you a canoli &... More

Choose a clear night/evening without raining or snowing and visit in December the streets in Dyker Heights. The houses are illuminated like in the movies.

Having lived in neighboring Bay Ridge, I can truly say Dyker Heights is a great neighborhood in Brooklyn. Despite it being situated in between the neighborhoods of Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst, Borough Park, and Sunset Park, the D and N subway trains, and the BQE and Belt Parkway, the neighborhood feels self-contained, safe to walk across, and the housing stock seems...

The area hasn't changed much since I grew up there in the 50's and early 60's.....it is still predominantly Italian which affords you plenty of opportunities to sample some great Italian cuisine....It is a safe area and if you are there during Christmas season you are in for a great...There are some incredibly expansive and novel lighted Displays such as...

We strolled around on our own one night between Christmas and new years eve after reading some suggestions and it was awesome! As a newcomer to the united states I thought last year's Christmas in California was great, but this exceeded it by far. It's just crazy what people make of their homes for Christmas! The main streets to see... More

Dyker Heights is still one of the best neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Take a ride and cruise 'the hill' to take in the very beautiful homes there. Lots of nice restaurants on 13th Avenue. While there stop in Portraits by Joanne Photography to plan a wedding or family portrait.

I was prepared for a lot of tacky lights, but was very pleasantly surprised to find, instead, many spectacular and professionally decorated homes. We enjoyed the tour very much and the guides banter and 'inside stories', and actually rented a car and went back a week or so later to just wander up and down all the streets and see... More

This Italian neighborhood lights up the area with Christmas lights.If you have a car and the time. it is a great sight to see. The whole neighborhood trims their homes with lights, Santas, Angels, managers, mechanical sets. Drive slowly and watch for pedestrians.
