Nothing like it in NYC. Block after block of Christmas lights. Large crowds but it makes it more fun. Park your car and walk thru 84st/11 ave, which is closed to traffic. Every year more houses add lights. Huge displays on many houses professionally done. Great pic taking and give to elmo for charity

Our group took the bus tour to Dyker Heights to see the Christmas lights. The bus took us to the neighborhood and dropped us off so that we could walk around and view the lights. Other than seeing the lights, that was the best thing.....it gave us the opportunity to walk by the homes, soaking in the beauty of their... More

The Dyker Heights has been consistently making the "Top 10 things to do in NYC on holidays" lists everywhere for very long time now and for a good measure. It is free and totally awesome attraction. All you need is to pay subway (or cab) fare. This is a labor of love of the local residents and a total delight... More

Dyker Heights is an unusual residential neighborhood. The houses are beautiful from an architectural point of view. Christmas time it is so decorative you would think you're walking in daylight, but of course it has to be seen at night in the dark. I suggest you go visit with your family or friends.

Just amazing. If this isn't what Christmas is about then I don't know what is. My friend and I got there early and at first I wasn't immediately excited but then the darkness came and the lights came on...I was totally blown away :) :) If you could avoid the costly tours n go there on your own I highly...

Great to visit and see the amazing lights. Also good to travel across from Manhattan to see another part of NYC. Guide, Marc (with a c) was the first person we had come across in the first week in Manhattan who should have been doing guiding. Most people in Manhattan should not be near the public. Not a lot of... More

Had a wonderful evening visiting Dyker Heights. I wanted to see some Christmas lights and decided to visit this place after reading the reviews. It was beautiful. All the houses were gorgeously decorated. It wasn't too crowded so we were able to enjoy the views. A must visit if you are in New York during Christmas.
