The tour to Dyker Heights was absolutely fantastic. Nothing could get you more in the mood for Christmas than a December trip to NYC with a visit to Dyker Heights. What an atmosphere, nothing like it.

This neighborhood has come together and had the most spectacular decorations that we ever saw in a quaint little neighborhood. We took so many pictures it was like being in an amusement setting.

We went expecting lots of OTT lights that would put us in the Christmas mood. We weren’t disappointed. We booked through trip advisor and it was a well run excursion. Our guide took us to the best place to start and explained the route to...More

We walked past most of the blocks with lights, traveling by subway and foot from downtown Brooklyn. The displays are amazing; some a bit over the top. Be prepared for a huge mob of people crowding the sidewalks and spilling into the streets. don't try...More

While NYC has its share of Christmas decorations during the holidays, it's worth it to see how elaborate the decorations at Dyker Heights are. You could probably spend a good hour or so going from house to house and seeing how over-the-top some decorations are....More

We asked each block and looked at the amazing lawn and Home decorations, spoke with Santa, had hot chocolate and listened to the Christmas Caroler’s. It definitely felt like Christmas and if you went with no spirit... you definitely left with Christmas spirit! Took Uber...More

We are constantly in the neighborhood visiting friends. At Christmas time this place comes alive. The houses are decorated beautifully. The people walking around makes it fun and festive. The only thing I don’t like is the tour buses blocking streets or hogging up parking.

Don’t know for certain but would expect lights up until after 12 Days of Christmas, when arrival of the 3 Kings is celebrated - which would be after the weekend of 5-6 January.

We use the Citymapper Iphone app for both subways and buses in the NYC area. It's great for mapping your route to the neighborhood and constantly updates times. It will tell you where buses stop and at what time.
