Everyone here is on the money about the Dyker Heights Christmas lights. I'm Jewish and love visiting this neighborhood at Christmas! The displays are gaudy, excessive and not in the least sophisticated in the aesthetic sense, but one feels the great dedication and love that goes into the decorations. They truly meet the definition of "spectacular." I'm in awe of... More

I grew up my whole life in Dyker Heights. I have been fortunate enough to get to live among the beauty of the" Holiday Lights" People come from near and far to see the house on display. They are truly spectacular. On a nice evening when the temperature is not too cold hundreds of people (families) walk the streets (up... More

Coming from someone who has lived in this part of Brooklyn of her life, this Christmas extravaganza is old hat. However, if you're an out of towner, you will be wowed! The competition by the palatial home owners of Dyker Heights, Brooklyn, NY is fierce, and the outcome of holiday decorations is outstanding to say the least. The creativity displayed... More

By defination of boundries I live in Dyker Heights. This is and upscale neighbirhood with homes on the expensive side. Average price $750,000+. Has many Mom & Pop stores with the restaurants serving some very good food. The neighborhood is relativly safe and you can walk around at night. There is an active place presense and crime is very low.

We've been there twice over the last 3 years and both times it was quite impressive. The whole neighborhood is decorated with complex installations, not just strings of lights. Highly recommended to visit. Just keep in mind it might be a challenge to find a parking spot, especially on weekends.

Dyker Heights is a lovely neighborhood in southwestern Brooklyn. It is filled with gorgeous homes and mini estates. My sister has lived there for many years even before it was a holiday destination. Christmastime is a very big deal in this area. Scores of homes go all out with spectacular displays of lights and holiday tableaux. It can get very... More

This is a bucket list place to visit during Christmastime. You might only need to do it once, but you will get an eyeful, it's better than FAO Schwarz with twinkling lights and moving characters.
