National Night Out in the Bronx

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.

  1. When is this yearly farce going to end? The criminals have have been on "their" blocks and will continue to be on them. A few hours once a year to take back part of a block doesn't say much about the other 364 days in a year on the other blocks. A National Night Out is an indictment of police efforts to take back our streets. The whole thing is a pathetic attempt to make things look not as bad as they really are.
