Good neighborhood holiday light displays?

holiday lights in the park 2014 snapshotPaul emails:

Have you ever done a story on good neighborhoods in the Capital District to view holiday lights? I know there is the Washington Park Lights, but I think there are specific neighborhoods that go over the top. My 10 yr old son loves to see the lights and was going to do some cruising this weekend with him.

There was an Ask AOA question about this years ago with a few suggestions. But things change. Some people get realllly into Christmas. Others fall out of it. So it seemed like a good time to pick it up back.

Got a suggestion for good holiday light display -- specific house, neighborhood, or street? Please share!

Apple Blossom Lane in Colonie

I went to Apple Blossom last night- two houses done up. Not worth the drive.

My grandparents live off of East Lydius street in Guilderland. If you happen to be going over the hills and through the woods it's a pretty drive.

@Sarah - That's too bad. Maybe people have moved out of the neighborhood. As of just a few years ago, the whole street was over the top.

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
