Great place to visit and see the Christmas lights on various privately owned homes. The best way to do this is to go In the early evening and just drive around. Of course you must respect the people who live there by not blocking traffic or being in the way

Dyer Heights is a nice residential neighborhood. It is not at all a tourist attraction. With the exception of good pizza and beautifully decorated homes for the holidays, there is no other reason to go there.

If you love Christmas decorations, this is the place to go after the Fifth avenue displays.

The homes in Dyker Heights are old and massive. There are various styles to see and admires. There is als the commercial aspect with mant stores and good restaurants (Chef Andrea) being one of my favorites. Bust during the day as locals ar eout shopping. Also some very good backeries such as "Grandma's)

Living in Brooklyn the most decorated neighborhood has to be Dyker Heights, the most elaborate of decorations for the Christmas Holidays I have ever seen ! Many times cars have lined up to drive block by block circling the area enjoying the decorations with children in tow to give the holiday spirit to all .

If you like Christmas ... this is the place to be. Houses are decorated with thousands of lights and the whole area just reminds me of wonderland. Just make sure you visit during the week as the weekends are super packed with tourists and locals alike. If you drive it is a miracle if you find parking :)
