What You’ll Do and See

  • Check out neighborhoods other tours don’t know about, including the gorgeous Christmas displays in Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst.
  • You’ll experience the incredibly decorated homes from both on and off the bus and will be escorted through the areas by your guide for the best photos!
  • You’ll love our multimedia presentation which includes vintage Christmas variety specials starring Andy Williams, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and more!
  • Visit Lucy Spata’s house. Lucy started the tradition of “Dyker Lights” back in the 80’s.

  • See the Polizzotto home, featuring the largest Santa in the neighborhood at 15 feet tall!

  • Enjoy millions of lights! They are even synchronized to music at Robert DeLauro’s house!

  • Check out Sam the Greek’s house, best described as “Christmas meets Las Vegas!”

  • Experience good Old-fashioned holiday cheer with family and friends.

  • You’ll have the true Brooklyn community feeling. Our guides grew up in Brooklyn so we know the homeowners and stories about them. Sometimes they’ll even come say hi!

“Unforgettable in every way...”

“I heard about the Christmas Lights in Dyker Heights after listening to an interview with someone who was talking about Christmas in NYC on BBC Radio 2 a few years ago. I thought they sounded incredible, so when I decided to celebrate a big birthday (21 again- if only!) by coming to New York at Christmas, a trip to Dyker Heights was top of my list...and it certainly didn't disappoint. Our guide was friendly and informative- we couldn't have asked for more- we were taken to all of the most exquisitely decorated areas along with some quieter locations too. Each house was beautiful- I really don't know how Christmas lights in England will measure up this year! I wholeheartedly recommend this experience to anyone, so well organised and efficient with a friendly feel. The memory of seeing Manhattan whilst the Christmas classics were playing along in the background was particularly special. An excellent experience for all the family.” – Donna from New York

Xmas lights enthusiastic

Especially perfect if invited to see the interior of Sam, the Greek’s house. CatarinaIze 2015-12-30T20:00:00-05:00So much fun. “Tour guide was very funny and the bus driver excellent. Never would have seen as much as we did if we had gone on our own. Since the guide knows the people in each neighborhood it was more fun to hear the inside scoop. We are planning on going again next year and bringing more family and friends. Funny things was, most of the people on the tour were from way out of town. Mostly European. Guess the word got out on how much fun this tour is.”

Best Tour on Our NYC Trip!

My mother and I would definitely recommend this tour! This was mom’s first time to New York City, and she loves Christmas lights, so this tour of these larger than life displays was a given. Our tour guide just happened to be the owner of this tour company, and we couldn’t have asked for anyone better. Very knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating, and fun! Even the ride to the three different neighborhoods was enjoyable because we while riding we were told some history of the homes and residents, where we were and how we were traveling, tidbits about the places we were traveling through, and even watched a video of old Christmas variety shows. We had plenty of time in each of the three areas traveled to for viewing the lights, and our safety was always a concern of our tour guide and driver. The bus was clean, comfy, and even had a rest room. I can’t wait to return to NYC and try another Slice of Brooklyn Bus tour!

Lights & Decorations

Like Nowhere Else Our guide, Bruce, and driver, Tony, were terrific in both providing a gentle ride and entertaining and informative tour, allowing us to get out three times, do a bit of walking and gawking and (of course) take numerous pictures. it was a genuine “OOOH/AHHH” event. So glad we got to experience Brooklyn Lights! Might even do it again next year!

Great Tour. A Must See!!

Years ago I tried — by subway and on foot — to find the “Dyker Lights” on my own. I failed miserably. Thank goodness for A Slice of Brooklyn and their “Christmas Lights Tour”. Just get on the bus in Manhattan and they will take you out there, sharing a great deal of wonderful information as you go. This is an experience you cannot get on your own, and it is not to be missed. Highly recommended. I will take this tour again and bring my niece and nephew next time!

Impressive Christmas decorations to drool over!

Our guide whose name I cannot remember now was a young lady with great expertise and made us all laugh with every single comment about how this tradition started back in the 80’s. She seemed like a brilliant, fun actress who knew her script by heart! :) This tour was one of my greatest experiences in New York without a doubt.
