The Bright Lights of Dyker HeightsWednesday, December 16, 2015
The last week before Christmas always tend to be crazy for everyone and I'm no exception. I always travel at this time of the year so that I can spend the holidays with my loved ones, so that comes with lots of rushing between year-end get-togethers with friends, last-minute hustling at work, and getting piles of errands out of the way. The past few days have been nothing short of hectic. But last night at least, I got to take a breather from the madness and take in the spectacular holiday sights at Dyker Heights.
My friends and I trekked to this Brooklyn nabe, drawn by stories of mansions magnificently lit up for the holidays. Dyker Heights certainly lived up to our expections. As we walked from block to block, we saw one house after another crowded with our favorite Christmas characters, festooned with Santas and reindeer, graced with nativity scenes, and draped with tons of twinkling lights.
It was the perfect way to cap off another sparkling year in New York. Tomorrow, I'll leave the city once known as New Amsterdam for the original version so that I can enjoy the holidays with my favorite Dutch guy. When I return, there'll be a whole new year to enjoy in this spectacular city. Thanks for a brilliant holiday send-off, New York, and see you in 2016!
