Dyker Heights


Dyker Heights, is between Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst, encompasses Dyker Beach Park on Gravesend Bay and the huge, public Dyker Beach Golf Course. It may have been named for two Van Dykes who helped to divide the land in 1719 or for the dikes used to drain and reclaim marshland that once belonged to the area.
The area remained largely rural until the early 20th century, when developers built a number of one- and two-family houses. Mansions along 11th Avenue afford magnificent views of the Narrows and Gravesend Bay. A business district is located along 13th Avenue. Mostly residential, Dyker Heights is a sight to behold around Christmas time. You can see some of New York City's most elaborate holiday displays.
