Very safe, diverse, and friendly neighborhood! Schools around are excellent, there are local delis and grocery stores on almost every corner. Not the neighborhood for nightlife but can definitely find some beautiful homes and apartments. During the holidays the lightings and decorations always attempt tourists. There are buses all around the neighborhood as well as trains.

I love dyker heights, brooklyn. It serves as a great medium between residential life and city life. Manhattan is a few short miles away, Bay Ridge is down the street and Staten Island is a bridge ride away. There are so many family events to do in this town. There are also great restaurants and a nice bar scene in Bay Ridge. The light shows throughout the winter season is something you cannot miss!
Dyker Heights is an amazing suburban neighborhood of grandiose homes in southwestern Brooklyn. The streets are quiet and green with beautifully kept houses containing affluent residents. The residents tend to be upper middle class/upper class and take great pride in their neighborhood. The stores on the only commercial strip (13th ave) is limited to a relatively upscale market (hair salons, meat markets, law offices) and La Bella marketplace is considered “town square”. The neighborhood is markedly well to do and has a large Italian-American population. There is a growing affluent Asian-American population, which makes up a little less than a quarter of the population. Overall, Dyker Heights is an amazing suburban neighborhood that is perfect for professional families and established retirees.
