Dyker Frights is the creation of graphic designer Anthony George. He’s lived in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn for 17 years. It’s a really cool neighborhood thing and next door neighbors allow him to use their front yards. He’s been doing this for the last 12 years. Every year you can check this out around Halloween on 79th Street between 11th and 12th Avenues.
Anthony has been a horror fan since childhood. He’s been hooked since watching Night of the Living Dead.
I really wish he didn’t leave Bay Ridge for Dyker because this is awesome. We’re horror fans so when we found out about this we had to check it out. I’m surprised I didn’t hear about it sooner. At least Dyker is next door to Bay Ridge 🙂

Dyker is also known for their festive Christmas displays.
Vic and I use to argue who came from the better borough just because that’s what we do. We’ve agreed that Manhattan was cool until CBGB closed. That marked the end of an era for NYC. What once was a city that gave rise to the likes of Talking Heads, Debby Harry, The Ramones, Blondie, etc., is now a place about the already established just like the John Varvatos store that took over CBGB’s spot. One thing Manhattan never had was something like Dyker Frights or their famous Christmas displays. Brooklyn wins in this category.

They look pretty scary!
He does a really good job. On par with all the haunted houses we like to go to during Halloween.
