Shining examples of Christmas spirit brighten end of tough year

It’s time again for the “Dyker Lights” Christmas display, one of the city’s most popular tourist destinations.

Each year, thousands of people visit Dyker Heights to look at the brightly decorated houses between 10th and 13th Avenues.

Some tours were canceled last year due to COVID-19 but have resumed. Some companies, including A Slice of Brooklyn Bus Tour, require proof of vaccination for adults. According to its website, children 12 and under must be either fully vaccinated or present a negative COVID-19 PCR test.
