Day-tripping: Dyker Heights

In keeping with this newsletter’s unintentional theme of lights, this week we recommend an excursion to the historically Italian Dyker Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, which is unequivocally the place to see impressive Christmas displays. And yes, they are still happening this year. It’s an easy trip: take the D train to 79th Street and New Utrecht Avenue and then walk for about 15 minutes. You can also drive, but parking is a challenge. Alternatively, Slice of Brooklyn offers a 3.5 hour Christmas lights tour that leaves from Union Square. If you want to make a day out of it, we recommend heading to nearby Bay Ridge for some small biz holiday shopping followed by dinner at Gino’s. And no trip to the area is complete without a stop at Villabate Alba bakery for authentic Sicilian baked goods.
