This year marks the 30th anniversary of National Night Out Against Crime and the 13th Precinct Community Council and the 13th Precinct look 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 created at the Middle School 104 playground, 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.
Karpas Health Information Center, RCN Cable, the NYS Public Service Commission and the NYC DEP will be on hand again as will M&T Bank, Valley National Bank and representatives of the FBI. New to the event this year will be NY Life as well as recent arrivals to the neighborhood, TD and Ponce de Leon Banks. More than half-a-dozen 7-Eleven stores residing in the precinct will provide beverages and Fairway Chelsea, another new arrival to the 13th Precinct, will also donate to the evening’s fare.  The event will take place in the playground behind M.S. 104 on Second Avenue and 20th Street from 5-8 p.m. on Tuesday, August 6.
