Grab a pair of sunglasses and join the crowds in Dyker Heights in Brooklyn. A beloved Christmas tradition for tourists and locals alike, this stroll through the neighborhood will outshine any home lights display you've ever seen. Homeowners outdo themselves (and their neighbors!) year after year, with hundreds of thousands of lights, inflatable Santa's and snowmen, larger-than-life nativities, and holiday carols blasting from loudspeakers. Wowing even your most stubborn Christmas humbug, there are even snacks and hot chocolate for sale at the ends of some driveways. If you're not interested in a walk, reserve your tickets for a bus tour. If you're happy to brave the cold on foot, you’ll see breathtaking light displays between 11th and 13th Avenues (also known as Dyker Heights Blvd) and from 83rd to 86th streets. The lights show lasts until New Year's Eve, and every night they'll shine until about 9 pm.
