While Rockefeller Center might seem like an obvious choice for a winter in New York, the Dyker Heights neighborhood in Brooklyn has an almost equally impressive display of holiday decorations. Each winter, my family and I make sure we catch every single house’s setup. Displays include classic string lights, giant nutcrackers and toy soldiers, moving reindeer and more. Though the neighborhood gets more and more crowded with locals, and even tourists, every year the Dyker Heights holiday decorations remain a staple for us.
