Dyker Heights by foot


Is it a lot to cover on foot? Or should we consider the bus tour with a mandatory hot chocolate and a cannoli? It just seems 3.5 hours on a bus is a lot of time to spend on one neighborhood.Plus,that night we'll be staying in Brooklyn,and seems like all of the buses leave from Manhattan.Thanks in advance.

It is indeed a lot to cover by foot -- and there is no such thing as a "mandatory" (!) hot chocolate or a compulsory cannolo. Stalin is dead, and the KGB is not waiting to drag you off to Lubyanka if you say "no, thank you" to the refreshments offered.

We visited Dyker Heights last year just before Christmas. We booked a private driver to take us so that we could wander around ourselves. We spent about 3 hours wandering around so 3.5 hours does not seem excessive.

There were 4 large blocks that were really worth seeing. There seemed to be more but we didn't get to them.

Y'see, I'd rather do almost anything than spend 3.5 hours sitting on a bus. Realistically, with transit to and from the area and walking around, you won't save any time over the bus tour - it's just way out there in southern Brooklyn - but at least you won't be stuck on a bus.
