The lights of Dyker Heights

December 11th, 2014

Dyker Heights is home to NYC's most famous Christmas lights. While there are individual houses in other parts of the city that rival the craziest ones here, there's no other neighborhood that can match the density of over-the-top displays — house after house after house — that you'll find in this section of Dyker Heights (photos). At peak hours in December, the most illuminated blocks are packed with people gawking at the lights; tourists come from around the world, and there are even $50-per-person guided bus tours. The house above belongs to Lucy and Angelo Spata, Dyker lights pioneers who have been putting on a Chrismastime spectacle for some three decades now.
