Bundle up warm and walk around to best enjoy this free attraction. Be prepared to park a few blocks away. We went a week before Xmas on a weekday so not crowded. A few years ago we went on a weekend and it was mobbed. If Disney was in NYC this is what it would look like. While there check... More

The battery died, it's unfortunate, but it happens...especially in cold weather. The tour guide was very apologetic and kept us informed of the repair progress ...the battery was fixed, we were rescued from our hot chocolate and cannoli and safetly delivered back to Union Square. I don't think its fair to trash the company over the incident. About the lights....WOW!... More

As I write we are sitting on the bus- dead battery- at end of the tour with company" A Slice of Brooklyn". What a joke!! Not really with a bunch of kids and its getting late.

At Christmas time the decorations on the houses are beautiful. Especially in the 80's between 10th avenue and 13th avenue. plus there are many places to eat good food and pizza.

Below is my earlier review from a while back. It still holds true, but I will add this: Now there are bus tours that bring people. The auto traffic is worse than it's ever been and the pedestrian traffic is worse, too. Some of these buses do NOT come with a "potty" yet they include hot cocoa or water -... More

Friends recommended this tour as a way to get into the Christmas spirit. I don't see how ANYONE could come away from this tour without a smile on their face and a Christmas carol running through their heads. Paula was our tour guide. She is an absolute delight. Lots of fun with good stories and very intimate knowledge of the... More

You can guarantee getting into the Christmas mood by stopping by to see the Christmas Lights in Dyker Heights & Bay Ridge Brooklyn. If you have kids they will absolutely love it.This has been a family custom and it isn't Christmas until we have completed out pilgrimage!

We wanted some Christmas spirit, and we got it! For some reason I thought it was only one street, but it's the entire area! And it's mostly well done, nothing is just thrown around :) Well, well done! We loved it, and I wish we had a car so we could have driven around and seen it all :) Cool... More

Really OTT displays - gross/kitch and beautiful at the same time. Some of the houses have moving santas/snowmen and it's all quite a feats for the eyes! If you take the f train it's quite easy enough to walk to the lights. Fun and free way to get into the festive season, it's like fairyland in Brooklyn!
