Excellent Christmas decorations!, Family oriented. Dyker Heights occupies a little less than a square mile, bordering Bay Ridge to the west at Seventh Avenue, Borough Park to the north at 65th Street, Bensonhurst to the east at 14th Avenue and Dyker Beach Park to the south at 86th Street. In addition, several blocks east of the park, near the Bath Beach neighborhood, are sometimes referred to as Dyker Park and associated with the Heights.

This Christmas Season many people refer to Dyker Heights as "DYKER LIGHTS" based upon all the beautiful and elaborate Christmas decorations in the neighborhood. If you have not visited the area during the Christmas season you are missing the great display of holiday spirit there.

Dear Lawandorder:

We always recommend that customers walk the neighborhood themselves to get a feel for the shopping, transportation, parking, entertainment etc.

Blogs and descriptions only provide a small window of knowledge about a neighborhood. Individuals are the best judge of what's best for them.

BTW: We happen to love the area around the golf course and Bay 8th st.

Best regards,

I agree with "Bensonhurst". The neighborhood is changing for the worse. You hear about incidences that you may not have heard about years ago. The home prices are steeper than surrounding neighborhoods. The "justification" for higher home prices is that there is value in the "neighborhood". With the neighborhood changing, people will want value in the home which more often than not is not there.

Park slope and the surrounding neighborhoods have better home values and these neighborhoods have been changing for the better.

thats completly not true I dont think your even from bensonhurst or NY
largge parts around themain area in Park Slope and near by areas near flatbush and SUNSET park are very VERY VERY high crime racial tension over priced shopping full of out out of towners. The police around there are very corrupt and do not respond to calls fro real help they made a huge fool of them selfves throwing a black concil man to the floor and cuffing him while at a neighorhood parade as he was goingto a special lunchon while police were sexually confronting and dancing around parade members grabbing them in the Jamacian parade there were 35 shootings in ONE DAY. THat doesnt happen in BENSONHURSt where there is a close sense of comunity and the police respond if you call there help full not harraesing or racial profiling Gentrefied areas are the worst! There arent hipsters and yuppies flooding to Bensonhurst and wifi coffee cafes all over the place to far from the city not cool and hipster

Why not see for yourself, take some time and visit the area; check out shops, dine in a local restaurant, check out recreational parks, transportation, etc.; if it suits your lifestyle then make your decision.

It was better couple of years ago. i lived here for 20 years and i never seen so many problems. The biggest problem is the kids from other neighborhoods come to New Utrecht making the Area worse then ever. I hear of kids over dosing, many bias attacks ect. But on the bright side, it is very family oriented. Trains and buses run all among Dyker Heights. The Best area to live in is 15 ave up to 10 ave and 18th ave up to 22nd ave. even the Bay's area are great places to live. in Dyker there are 3 - 4 parks within walking distance. VERY VERY VERY GREAT PLACE TO RAISE KIDS!!!! teenagers are a different story. to many drugs and Underground gangs.
