Merry Christmas From New York City

Every year, local residents in Brooklyn outdo one another with over-the-top Christmas light decorations. It is estimated that more than 100,000 visitors from across the city and the country come to see this neighborhood’s outpouring of creativity and fun, as light displays spill over their homes, roofs, and gardens.

When the holidays roll around, Dyker Heights in Brooklyn transforms into a sea of lights, inflatables, and music.

With almost every house joining in on the festivities, a warmly-dressed stroll around the area will have you seeing homes completely covered in sheets of twinkling lights and inflatable Santas (complete with the reindeer and a sleigh) while holiday tunes are blasted from speakers.
