Last Tuesday, the Bronx played host to several National Night Out events, including one on Morris Avenue at East 182nd Street (the first five photos) and another on Tiebout at East 183rd (the second five).
Currently its 26th year, National Night Out brings together local residents, community leaders, and police officers, with the aim of "taking back" the streets from criminals, and improving police-community relations.
Across the country, close to 40 million people took part.
