Crazy Christmas Lights of Brooklyn

Sightseeing and Attractions: (Duration: 4 hours with a Licensed NYC Tour Guide)

It’s not a wealthy or ostentatious neighborhood, but Dyker Heights, adjacent to Bensonhurst and for decades a bastion of Italian Americans, takes Christmas seriously, and invites everyone to come and join in on the fun.  The local residents outdo one another in mounting over-the-top Christmas light decorations.  Tens of thousands of tourists come to see this neighborhood outpouring of creativity and fun, as light displays spill over their homes, roofs, and gardens.  Kids will be awed by the sheer amount of holiday decorations: brightly lit Rudolphs on the roof, Santas on the lawn, and entire homes ablaze with lights.

Dyker Heights has been made famous in the PBS documentary Dyker Lights and seen on TLC’s Crazy Christmas Lights.

Highlights:

-       Animatronic toys and motorized displays
