Christmas in NYC means its time for holiday markets, Christmas tree lighting ceremonies and a flood of new Christmas window displays. But if that's not enough to get you in the spirit, the holiday cheer engineers of the Dyker Heights Christmas lights will certinly crank up your yule-tide joy. Every year after Thanksgiving, residents of this quaint Brooklyn neighborhood adorn their homes with bright, colorful lights. Some chose to create elaborate scenes while others opt for tastefully hung LEDs. The illuminated streets of South Brooklyn draw thousands of visitors as well as an annual Christmas lights tour. It's no wonder the beloved yearly spectacle has become known to many as Dyker Lights.
