The Basics

Located between Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst, Dyker Heights is known as a great place to raise a family. In winter months, visitors enjoy over-the-top Christmas-light displays adorning the neighborhood’s historical homes. Consider booking a guided tour to see all of the most festive houses. Tours often provide transportation to and from Manhattan—crossing one of Brooklyn’s lovely bridges—so you can avoid spotty weekend subway service and simply enjoy the views.

Lovely Christmas Tour
We really enjoyed this tour. We left at 4pm and called at Bay Ridge first. The streets there were empty there so you got a great view of all the lights. Dyker Heights was quite busy so I'm glad we did the earlier tour. The lights are brilliant and it makes you feel very Christmassy! Nice stop off on the way back to take photographs of the NY skyline.

Dyker Heights Brooklyn Christmas Lights Tour
Wonderful experience!! Super clean new bus with a washroom great driver and tour guide. This was a unique way to experience all the beauty of Christmas lights outside of Manhattan. We went not only to Dyker Heights but to another beautifully lit residential area. Had a surprise stop for delicious hot chocolate. Highly recommend this tour. Great value!

Dyker Heights Brooklyn Christmas Lights Tour
This is a good tour. We had three stops- two at Christmas lights in neighborhoods and one stop in DUMBO to see nyc views. Great guide- he was conscientious and knowledgeable. I’d love a bit longer at Dyker Heights- maybe a map to show where we could wander. But overall great trip!

This was a fun thing to do on Christmas Night. Our tour guide not only shared facts and history about the neighborhood and the lights but also the sites that we passed on the way there. This was very enjoyable, my husband and I would highly recommend.

Had a great time with my son seeing the lights in Dyker Heights. Antonio did a wonderful job telling us the history of areas we passed and stopped at. I would recommend everyone to do the tour. It was a lot of fun! The houses were over the top decorated. Something I've never seen before.

Nice trip and if you weren’t feeling Christmassy before the trip you will by the end of it! Quentin did a great job and herded his sheep very well.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Dyker Heights is great for families with kids, especially during the festive holiday season.

  • Winter in New York City can be very cold and windy, so wear warm layers.
