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.

After many years of hearing about the great lights at Dyker Heights, I decided this was the year. Took a bus tour, and it was well worth it. The lights are fabulous, and are worth all the hype. I love Christmas, and am very happy to have finally seen it.

Great way to see the lights. Tourvwas spoiled by someone taking the seat of someone in our party. Quite a lot of walking but a good way to see around Brooklyn areas...

The families in this neighborhood have put a Holiday Light twist to "Keeping up with the Joneses". Each decorated house block after block has added its own over the top addition to Holiday decorating. The decorations have become so elaborate that a cottage industry has sprung up so that there are at least two different companies that advertise their services... More

Having grown up on the Queens/Brooklyn border, I'd never been to Dyker Heights during the holidays. Some of the houses were beautifully decorated and quite a few used the same 2 companies. The truly amazing ones for me were the ones that the families who live there clearly did themselves. The kids enjoyed seeing all the lights and animations and... More
