16 of the Most Over-the-Top Christmas Displays in the Country

By  | 

Dyker Heights, Brooklyn NY

Just like clockwork, this neighborhood in Brooklyn starts decorating the weekend after Thanksgiving. More than 100,000 come to Dyker Heights to see the spectacle every year that continues for blocks, and if you’re looking for something a little different than Saks Fifth or the Rockefeller Christmas Tree lighting, this is quite the compromise. The light display is so over the top that it’s even been rumored that Con Edison, one of the largest investor-owned energy companies in the US, sends gift-baskets to the top houses in the neighborhood that run up the highest electric bills. Just make sure you get there before 9pm! If you can’t make it out to the big apple, you might as well check out the epic pictures.
