Last night we had the good fortune of a friend with a car offering a trip to view the over the top lights of Dyker Heights. This elegant Brooklyn neighborhood has a long standing reputation for Christmas displays that began in 1984. It has expanded yearly since to a current cavalcade of Christmas kitsch that will leave you bedazzled with your eyes ringing. There are moments of tasteful and ingenious engineering as well, and the fact that this neighborhood opens up for
the tens of thousands of light seekers is commendable.
