This 3 1/2 hour holiday tour highlights the festive homes of Dyker Heights, the Italian-American section of Brooklyn made famous in the PBS documentary "Dyker Lights" and seen on TLC's "Crazy Christmas Lights."
You'll also visit the festive homes in the Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst sections of Brooklyn.
We don't just take you to see the lights. You'll be escorted through the neighborhoods by our guides, both on and off the bus, and hear the stories behind the homeowners and their lights. You may even get to meet a homeowner or two!
The multimedia presentation on the bus includes classic Christmas music from throughout the decades as well vintage Christmas variety specials like Andy Williams, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and more on the screens of our bus on the ride back to Manhattan.
- Lucy Spata's house, the woman who started the tradition back in the 1980's!
- The Polizzotto home featuring the largest Santa in the neighborhood at 15 feet tall!
- Millions of lights with some of them synchronized to music like Robert DeLauro's house!
- Sam the Greek's house, one of the largest in Brooklyn that's best described as Christmas meets Las Vegas!
- and many, many more!
Every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday in December at 7pm.
Approximately 3 1/2 hours.
