On August 7, I joined the New York Police Department’s 20th Precinct, as well as the leaders and members of the precinct’s Community Council, in observance of National Night Out Against Crime. The event, held in Verdi Square Park, was a great example of the neighborhood coming together to honor the work that the 20th Precinct does for our community. I was pleased to join so many Upper West Side residents, including many children who came with their families. The youth in particular remind us that we need to be continually working together to improve our neighborhood’s safety. The event was fun for all ages, and I thank Deputy Inspector Brian McGinn and all of the dedicated public servants of the 20th Precinct for putting it together and for all they do to keep us safe throughout the year.
