This year marks the 31st year of National Night Out Against Crime and the 13th Precinct Community Council, along with the precinct office of Community Affairs, looks forward to hosting another fun-filled evening for the community.

The event is not only a terrific opportunity for area residents to enjoy the “block-party” atmosphere, it is also a way for area businesses and organizations to reach out to the community and to show their support and appreciation for the local precinct. The event will take place in the playground at MS 104 on Second Avenue and 20th Street (Peter’s Field) from 5-8 p.m. on Tuesday, August 5.

Karpas Health Information Center, RCN Cable, the NYS Public Service Commission and the NYC Department of Environmental Protection will be on hand again as will M&T Bank, NY Life Insurance Company, Ponce De Leon Bank and many other groups.

New to the event this year will be Explore & Discover, a recent arrival to the neighborhood. Several 7-Eleven stores residing in the precinct will provide beverages and Fairway Chelsea has generously provided the evening’s menu – burgers and hot dogs cooked on the grill.

Arrangements were also made for a bounce-around-house to be on site as well as the very popular caricature artists and participants who will create balloon animals and other inflated sculptures for children.

  1. My family and I had a great time tonight at the 13th Precinct’s National night out. We had a hotdog, cheeseburger and halal food. You guys are awesome there was so many things to do. The D.J was great and the kids bounce house, balloon and art was awesome! It was a pleasure to be surrounded by the community, dance and have a good time. Thank you again and definitely looking forward to next year. Have a great summer!!! :)
