Many tourists visit New York City during the Christmas season to see the light displays, but the real show is in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn. Most of the action is located in the 80's between 10th - 13th Avenues, but one of the busiest streets is 84th between 11th and 12th. There are families who decorate themselves and others who have...

I have gone 2 times now to see the Christmas lights. I'm making it a tration. The residents pay professionals to decorate their houses for Christmas. I here some projects cost up to $3000.00. There are houses that are completely covered with lights. Some have music playing. On one trip there a house had a DJ outside playing. It seemed... More

This is the neighborhood in Brooklyn that is a must see at Christmastime. Many of the residents put on spectacular Christmas displays that rival those put on by commercial enterprises. You won't believe the lengths that some of the residents go to during the season. It's truly a Christmas extravaganza, that you won't believe, until you see it for yourself.... More

nice and quiet neighborhood over public golf course & tennis courts, easy commute to Manhattan via express bus (pricey, $6 per ride). There are few houses with best-in-town xmas decorations around 12th avenue & 84th street

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...
