Fireworks Dazzle 'Nat'l Night Out' Crowd

Rockaway celebrated "National Night Out Against Crime" Tuesday with live entertainment, fireworks and plenty of food and drinks for brave community members who came out - despite intense heat and humidity - to celebrate with the 100 or 101 Precinct Community Councils. Community Affairs Unit officers from the 101 Precinct manned the grill and served up burgers and franks at their barbecue at O'Donohue Park in Far Rockaway. The 100 Precinct celebrated at The Beach Club with live entertainment and athletic displays by local kids and adults, and an Italian buffet. The main event was a 20-minute fireworks display on Beach 116 Street (see photo), courtesy of the 100 Precinct Community Council. See pages 32 and 34 for more pictures from both events.
