It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Whether you’re wrapping last minute presents, sticking to the four main food groups or venturing to see the storied Dyker Heights holiday lights, we’ve got you covered in terms of what’s happening, what’s not, and where you can park when you get to your in-laws’.

What’s happening?

Gift-giving and cookie-eating, presumably.

(If you don’t have any plans, here’s list of 10 things to do on Christmas, even if you don’t celebrate!)

What’s not happening?

Garbage pickup

News for those who live, work and play in Brooklyn and beyond

There will be no trash, curbside compost or recycling collection, nor street cleaning on Christmas Day. Residents who normally receive Wednesday trash and curbside composting collection should place their materials out at curbside after 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 25 for collection beginning Thursday, Dec. 26.

And, while we’re here, you can expect the same shift to happen next Wednesday, New Year’s Day. Residents normally receiving Wednesday recycling collection should place their material out at curbside after 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 1 for collection Thursday, Jan. 2.

Mail delivery

Your post-person has the day off, too.

Alternate side parking

Alternate side parking regulations are suspended Wednesday.

What’s closed?

Government buildings

City, state and federal government buildings, including courts and post offices, are closed for Christmas Day. They’re closed next week for New Year’s Day, too.

Schools, banks and libraries

New York City public schools are closed for the holiday, as are most banks. All New York Public and Brooklyn Public Library branches will be closed both Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Probably some Brooklyn businesses

Check in with your favorite restaurant for holiday hours before making any meal plans. Same goes for any last minute holiday shopping you might do. Every business observes differently!
