What you’ll do

You might think New York’s picture postcard Christmas scenes are all in Manhattan, you know, the ice-rinks in Central Park and all that jazz, but just over the Brooklyn Bridge is a winter wonderland waiting to surprise you.

It took us by surprise too.

You’ll join one of our Brooklyn hosts to visit the local neighborhoods of Dyker Heights and Bay Ridge, where you’ll find the most extravagant (and we really mean extravagant) Christmas lights displays you could ever imagine.

These spectacular displays are so dazzling you may need sunglasses, just warning you.

If marveling at the houses beautifully dressed up for the holidays isn’t enough to get you in a festive spirit, visiting a cool holiday market where you can eat, drink and be merry as you pick of some Christmas gifts made by local artists and designers should be!

It’s a real New York tradition to make the trip to see the Dyker Heights lights - a Christmas pilgrimage or sorts - so you’ll be in the good company of NY locals for this festive treat!
