It's a great area to live in, there is so much to do. You have access to public transportation, shopping, restaurants- all while residing in an area that has that "homey" feel. The neighborhood is densely populated, which has both its pros and cons. Houses are very close to one another and parking is sparse if you don't have a driveway. The neighborhood also has an extremely high cost of living. While I love how "homey" this neighborhood is some of the cons due to its density and popularity make me question whether this will be my permanent home or not.

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.
The public schools in this neighborhood are above par. For example, the elementary schools and middle schools in this area were all rated highly on niche. Unlike many others, this neighborhood is very safe at night. Residents keep the area in front of their houses clean so there is less litter compared to other areas. Dyker Heights is also slowly becoming a more diverse neighborhood. Different shops and restaurants have sprung up along 13th avenue in the past few years, making things more convenient for residents of Dyker Heights.
