Dyker Heights: Dyker Heights in Brooklyn topped our list of the five best neighborhoods for holiday lights for a third year in a row, and it’s no surprise why! The neighborhood draws thousands of visitors every holiday season, and we are sure that this year will be no different. We hear the best lights are on 11th avenue between 83rdand 86th street. Stay up to date on everything going on at this holiday spectacular at the community’s Facebook page, Dyker Heights Christmas Lights. Plan ahead, the traffic can take anyone out of that holiday cheer!

Pelham Gardens: The Garabedian Family home at 1605 Pelham Pkwy N is the Bronx’s own holiday tradition. The family has been decorating the home every year for the past 29 years. This isn’t any ordinary holiday display, though. There are over 200 animated figurines dancing to holiday music.

Whitestone: One must-see display is on the corner of 166th Street and 23rd Avenue. Known as “Santa’s Corner,” the home includes thousands of lights, hundreds of figurines and plenty of families who come out to see it every year. In 2013 it took home the top prize on the ABC reality TV show “The Great Christmas Light Fight.”

Jamaica Estates: 80th Drive and Chevy Chase Street is where you want to go if you’re in the area of Jamaica Estates this holiday season. The home is enormous and owner Anthony Gurino covers it all with holiday decorations every year. Gurino even sets up the front yard so that spectators can actually walk through the display, sit on benches and take advantage of all of those amazing selfie-photo ops!

Westchester: If you’re in Westchester, cruise over to 21 N. Kensico Ave. to check out more than 10,000 computerized Christmas lights set to music. The family has been running the North Kensico Christmas Light Show for seven years, and claims it to be the best light show in all of New York. Lights will be on from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. every night until Jan. 2. If you want to catch even more lights in the area, head over toWestchester’s Winter Wonderland, just three miles away.
