28 stunning photos of the neighborhood that puts on the best Christmas-light displays in America


Dyker Heights Christmas Lights 8

  • The neighborhood of Dyker Heights in Brooklyn, New York, puts on a Christmas light display every year.
  • It has become a tourist attraction, with guided tours and buses.
  • Residents spend days thoughtfully planning and installing their light displays, which are just mesmerizing to admire.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories
The suburban Brooklyn neighborhood of Dyker Heights is a quiet and friendly area year-round — that is, until the holidays start. That's when the neighborhood is flooded with thousands of Christmas-light peepers anxious to see the area's famed displays. Countless homes in the neighborhood take part, putting up dazzling and awe-inspiring feats of festivity, and likely producing similarly awe-inspiring electric bills. In 2015, I took a trip to Dyker Heights to see the hyped "Dyker Lights" for myself. The displays were mesmerizing and it's always fun to look back on the lights to get in the holiday spirit. Keep scrolling to see some lights that would make Clark Griswold die from envy.SEE ALSO:  Inside New York City's most festive bar, where they spend more than $60,000 a year getting ready for Christmas Dyker Heights is a good half-hour drive from downtown Manhattan, and about an hour away on the subway. Luckily, there are Dyker Lights tour buses that will take you there hassle-free — for a price. You can see most of the best displays between 11th and 13th avenues around 81st through 86th streets. Some of the homes put up stately, elegant arrangements. Others go all-out, with lights, Santas, and nutcrackers galore. The tradition started in 1984, and more homes followed suit every year. Source: New York Post It soon became something of a friendly competition among neighbors to see who could outdo each other with their brilliant displays. This home's glowing sign reads "Buon Natale" — "Merry Christmas" in Italian. And there are more than just the traditional white lights — this home puts on a bright blue bonanza. Many have enormous holiday characters worked into their displays. This house is host to an eclectic group of Mr. Potato Head, Rudolph, and Snoopy, along with Elsa and Olaf from the popular movie "Frozen." Číst dále >>>

The best humidifiers

best humidifiers


  • An excellent humidifier can make your home's air much more comfortable to breathe, particularly when the air becomes too dry. 
  • There are a number of great humidifiers to choose from, but our top pick is the Pure Enrichment Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier  because it's stylish, inexpensive, and versatile enough to suit most people's needs.
When the air gets too dry, it could lead to health issues like bloody noses, cracked lips, itchy skin, and more. Not only that, it can be uncomfortable to breathe in dry air. This is common during cold weather when a home is heated, and besides making our bodies feel discomfort, low humidity could also damage porous things like wooden furniture and framed art. Which is why an air humidifier can help. A humidifier is an electrical appliance that uses water to humidify the air. Humidifiers come in different shapes and sizes, but for this guide, we focused on portable units that are affordable and can be easily purchased. Still, there are various types of portable humidifiers. Hot or cold? In general, humidifiers are divided into "warm mist" and "cool mist." Warm-mist humidifiers release moisture into the air by heating it, which kills bacteria in the water. But, if there are children or animals in the house, warm-mist humidifiers can be hazardous because of how hot the appliance gets, as well as the potential for accidentally spilled hot water. Within the cool-mist humidifier segment, there are three types:
  • Ultrasonic humidifiers use high-frequency waves to split water drops into particles, which are then released into the room.
  • Evaporative humidifiers take the room's air and pass it through a filter with water in it, creating a mist. That mist is then blown out the other end of the humidifier.
  • Impeller humidifiers are similar to ultrasonic humidifiers, but instead of using ultrasonic waves, they break-up water drops using a rotating disc. These humidifiers operate louder than the others.
Which option you choose depends on your environment. The Mayo Clinic recommends cool-mist humidifiers if you have children, because of the aforementioned safety concerns. It also said both cool-mist and warm-mist humidifiers are equally effective. However, cool-mist humidifiers require more cleaning because they have a higher chance of bacteria and mold growth. It's also recommended that distilled or purified water be used instead of tap water. As mentioned, warm-mist humidifiers disperse steam by heating water, rather than using a fan. They're quieter and they can heat up small rooms, according to appliance maker, Luma Comfort. However, they also require more energy to operate. There are pros and cons to both, and the best option will depend on your needs. We looked at a variety of humidifiers to find the best ones, at a variety of price points. Here are the best humidifiers you can buy:

This airline-compliant dog carrier is comfortable for small dogs and convenient for their owners — here's what we love about it


Wild One Air Travel Carrier

  • The new Wild One Air Travel Carrier ($125) meets all the needs of your four-legged frequent flier — and yours too.
  • It's a soft-sided dog carrier that's lightweight yet sturdy and keeps its shape as well as a heavy hard-sided carrier.
  • It's also airline-compliant and loaded with extras like a canopy bed and shoulder strap that converts to a leash. And while it was designed for small dogs, I'd even recommend it for cats.
While traveling with dogs can be difficult, finding a pet carrier that meets all the needs of your four-legged frequent flier is a challenge. What you want is lightweight but sturdy, loaded with pockets for pet gear and your own items, as comfortable inside as your dog's bed, easy to get your dog into, and attractive — while meeting airline and train travel regulations and size.  I found dog carriers that were too heavy, too cramped, and lacking added storage, which meant toting an extra bag for dog essentials along with my luggage. I would arrive at my destination with a body that needed a chiropractic adjustment, and a dog who could use one too.  Then I was sent the new Wild One Air Travel Carrier to test. It's a sleek and elegant bag that is loaded with extras.  Wild One is a Brooklyn-based startup that was founded in 2017 by a group of pet lovers with a clean, modern design aesthetic. The company's mission is to "make living the 'pet life' easier and more joyful." To that end, they produce high-quality, functional gear and toys with a classic appeal. They also give back by donating a portion of their proceeds to Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue , a nonprofit rescue organization that helps find homes for dogs from high-kill shelters in the rural South.  Wild One designed a dog carrier that is comfortable for dogs and convenient for their owners I tested the black Air Travel Carrier , but it's also available in tan. Made from lightweight neoprene blended with polyester and spandex, it's soft-sided but with the shape retention of a hard-sided carrier and the look of a sleek weekend duffle bag. Designed to meet airline regulations, it measures 17.5 inches long, 11 inches wide, and 10 inches high and is recommended for dogs up to 16 pounds. My 4.5 pound Yorkie, Buster, can actually stand up in it, let alone turn around per regulations.  Mesh panels cover the sides and the top. They provide plenty of ventilation yet are discreet enough that some might not even notice you're traveling with your dog. Each side panel also has a privacy screen that can be retracted by zipper, and you can partly unzip the sides or the top so your dog can pop their head out. Inside, there's a quilted cushioned mat to keep them comfortable. There are two carry handles, a removable adjustable shoulder strap that doubles as a leash, and a trolley sleeve. The sleeve fits easily over a luggage handle, and thanks to the carrier's sturdy rigid bottom, even with a tiny dog like Buster, the bag balances securely on top of luggage. But if you've checked your bags and will be wearing the carrier on your shoulder or holding it by the carry handles, don't worry — it is actually surprisingly light.  The Wild One Air Travel Carrier is loaded with extras Číst dále >>>
