For 11 months out of the year, Dyker Heights is a quiet, unassuming, almost suburban neighborhood in South Brooklyn. The residents go to school, work and go about their daily life as anyone normally would.
Then comes December and Christmas.
This normally unassuming neighborhood becomes a destination for both locals and tourists. A living testament to the color and creativity that is decorating for Christmas, the homeowners go way beyond a tree with simple lights and a few ornaments. The entire neighborhood lights up in a way that one would not expect a neighborhood in Brooklyn to light up for Christmas.
A must see for both tourists and locals alike, it is a reminder of the joys of the season.
