The 7th Precinct ‘National Night Out’ Returns to East Broadway Tonight

Posted on: August 6th, 2019 at 5:01 am by

Tonight, the 7th Precinct is back with its annual summer extravaganza on the Lower East Side, National Night Out.

The summertime block party is held across the country in an effort to increase awareness for police programs within communities, such as highlighting neighborhood watches and drug prevention. In the Five Boroughs alone, the NYPD hosts more than seventy. As in the past, the Lower East Side event also includes entertainment such as rides, food, and raffles.

National Night Out has been around since 1984, and is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch in the United States and Canada. Recent years have seen more than thirty-eight million residents in twenty-thousand communities across the country attended an event.

The event is free, and is happening from 4pm to 9pm, on East Broadway, between Clinton and Rutgers Street.
