One of the best things about the holidays in New York is getting to see all the extravagant, over-the-top Christmas decorations at places like Dyker Heights and that house in the Bronx. Photographer Scott Lynch spotted one such holiday display in Brooklyn this week... except something feels slightly off about it. This one just seems weird as hell.
This house is located in Crown Heights on Bergen Street, between Nostrand and New York Avenues. "The best part of this is that it's only house on the (very long) block with any decorations at all, other than, like, a wreath here and there," Lynch noted. No music though!
I can get the twisty lights that are stand-ins for Christmas trees, as well as the bushels of blue lights beneath them in place of normal shrubbery. But what is up with the long streamer lights hanging down across the entire brownstone? And why is the word "believe" written three times with nothing else there? What are we supposed to believe in? Should I just assume this is Cher-related?
And are those repurposed bootleg C3POs sitting on top of the house?!
I would love to hear what the neighbors think about this one.
