NNOAC Events Blow Away West End Crowds
|The 100 Precinct Community Council hosted the west end’s celebration of National Night Out Against Crime last Tuesday night at the Beach Club on Beach 116 Street. The event drew hundreds of people to the Beach Club for political speeches, children’s events and rides. A 9 p.m. fireworks display brought thousands to the boardwalk.
