The annual National Night Out Against Crime is back this month, as police precincts around Queens and the city make efforts to strengthen their connection with the communities they serve on Tuesday, Aug. 6.
From Astoria to Far Rockaway, every precinct in the borough will host an event of their own, replete with refreshments, activities and entertainment.
