Forest Hills celebrates Night Out — 112th Precinct

At the 112th Precinct’s National Night Out Against Crime event in MacDonald Park in Forest Hills, water sports were replaced with virtual sports.

A retrofitted truck filled with flat-screen TVs, leather couches, the newest video game consoles and popular franchises such as Madden NFL and NBA 2K had kids and teenagers flowing in and out of the vehicle.

For children too young to play Xbox One, balloon animals and face-painting stations were just as big of a hit.

Live music was also provided in the form of Borough President Melinda Katz.

The full-time politician, part-time singer performed “God Bless America” before presenting a proclamation to 112th Precinct Community Council President Heidi Chain declaring Tuesday, Aug. 5 as National Night Out Against Crime Day in the borough.
