Every Holiday Season, the the Dyker Heights Christmas Lights light up the world with brilliant displays of Christmas decorations. For the past few years, the running group I run with (South Brooklyn Running Club), has run the seven-mile route from Carroll Gardens to Dyker Heights. I unfortunately had to leave town before doing the run this year. But, below are a couple of pictures of when I did the run the first time, three years ago. If you happen to be in New York for the holidays, going down to Dyker Heights should be high on your list of things to do.
Here is generally where you are aiming, if you want to go. The lights are around 82nd to 85th Street, between 10th and 13th Avenues.
