this week pete and kristen traveled from dayton to visit nyc during the holidays. they stayed in the city a few nights then came to brooklyn for the weekend. we took them to dyker heights to see the extravagant, sometimes lovely, sometimes gaudy christmas lights.
it was nice walking the few blocks around 12th avenue and 84th street in mid-40's temperature but i'll admit i wouldn't have minded colder temperatures and a nice hot chocolate to help me get in the christmas spirit.
the homes in dyker heights are beautiful and it always feels like a bit of an escape to be in 'suburban' areas of brooklyn.
