Andrews Grove in Long Island City was jumping on Tuesday night for the 108th Precinct’s Night Out Against Crime.
Kids got to play in a number of bouncy obstacle courses and get their faces painted while the adults sampled food from some of the nearby eateries, which provided refreshments for all who attended.
Restaurants who served up menu favorites included Food Cellar and the Paris Hell Coffee Shop.
A family favorite was the balloon slide where kids and grown-ups alike climbed up an inflatable ladder and slid down the enormous slope.
The precinct’s commanding officer, Captain Brian Hennessy, was presented with a proclamation for the hard work he and his men and women in blue do every day for the Long Island City community.
State Sen. Mike Gianaris (D-Astoria) and Community Board 2 members were among the dozens of people to attend the event, which featured a DJ, dancing and opportunities for residents to meet and socialize with the officers who work to protect the safety and quality of life in their community.
