Curious Findings of Kristina Lucia wrote a review Dec 2020

For all those who love “walking through a winter wonderland” I am sharing my experience of visiting the Christmas Lights of Dyker Heights Brooklyn. This is my second year visiting this area and find it is a must on my holiday list. There are several ways to get this area via the R or D train or by driving. I tend to take the R train to 77th Street and walk over to 80th Street and 10th Avenue. Walking over is quite magical as many of the residents decorate their yards with twinkling lights and beloved holiday characters. Once on 10th Avenue my only dilemma is which way to walk! Houses and trees are outlined with lights and yard after yard has displays ranging from Santa, Snowmen, and yes, even the Grinch. I choose to go on a Saturday night and found the area was not overly crowded but some blocks are more congested than others. If you are planning to drive, there was a bit of traffic. Tip- The houses that are often featured on Social Media are located on 83rd and 84th Streets between 11th and 13th Avenues. Another plus of this area is that the homes are decorated through New Years allowing further opportunities to visit and enjoy. I am looking at my calendar debating when I can squeeze in another visit!

Many of the houses here are single family, on their own lots, and have a huge front yard facing the street, making them ideal for putting up Christmas decorations! Walk through this neighborhood and you'll see so many of the houses participating. A great, safe place to feel some holiday cheer!

Dyker Heights Christmas Lights 2019 display is definitely one of the best New York attractions. The Kings County neighborhood in Brooklyn is home to the most over-the-top Christmas light decorations with life-size Santas, sleighs, snowmen. Crowds of all ages flock to the to Dyker Heights to wander down the neighborhood blocks and experience one of the top things to do in NYC in the winter. Most of the homeowners—and professional decorating companies—hang their Christmas lights and decorations the weekend after Thanksgiving. However, the best time to see the lights is mid-December through New Year’s Eve. You can go anytime between dusk and 9pm.
