Dyker Heights was recently named number one in the top five place to see Christmas Lights. This may not come as a surprise to most locals. For years, residents of Dyker Heights have spent a pretty penny to make their homes the most festive in the city. This list, however, takes it a step further and names Dyker the first in all of the country.

Seattle-based internet real estate company Redfin announced its picks for best 2012 neighborhood holiday light displays, according to a release published by the Sacramento Bee. Dyker Heights joins ranks with Miracle on 34th Street in Baltimore, Peacock Lane in Portland, 37th Street in Austin and South 13th Street in Philadelphia.

The real estate agents have been surveying neighborhoods all over the country and these are the ones with the best lights, music, decorations and lawn characters.

As neighbors in the little Christmas enclave have already started decorating, this year’s displays will presumably be even brighter than the year before. The area to visit to see the best of the best is 11th Avenue to 13th Avenue and from 83rd to 86th Street.
