Night Out Against Crime In Far Rockaway
A huge turnout of local residents flocked to the park on Beach 17th Street and Seagirt Boulevard Tuesday night, August 6th, for this year’s National Night Out Against Crime celebration. Entertainment from rap to zumba and hot dogs and burgers from Applebee’s kept the party going. Among those sponsoring the event were the 101st Precinct, the 101st Precinct Community Council and Councilman Donovan Richards.
Children, families, friends and neighbors of all ages came out to enjoy a full day of activities that lasted till after dusk.
Event goers strolled along the paths of Far Rockaway’s O’Donohue Park, sat along the benches, walked the dunes and gathered around the park’s tables.
Later in the evening, hundreds of people stretched out over the hill in front of the newly-renovated park’s performance stage, shaking, bouncing and moving to the music of a massive, crowdpleasing zumba session.
