Precinct Night Out Against Crime (N.O.A.C)
BY Patricia Q. McDougald

Come hell or high water, the 17th Precinct will come through! And that is exactly what Capt. McEnroy, Det. Frank Bogucki and members of the Community Council did for the annual precinct get-together in Dag Hammarskjold Park on the rainy evening of August 5. They made themselves available and were more than willing to share their knowledge in answering the many questions put to them at the annual N.O.A.C.

While a number of other precincts folded their tents in the on-again, off-again rain, our precinct stuck it out-and with an amazingly large crowd. Grownups and kids alike were determined to enjoy the safest night out they could ever have in a park-ANY park. It was made all the better by the upbeat music of popular keyboardist Norm Curtis and the right-on singing of Jeanne Waller, both with talent galore!

The rain was coming down in earnest as Jay Litwin, Chairman of the 17th Precinct Community Council, began the presentation of thank-you plaques to a number of members of the City, State and U.S. governments for their outstanding service to the communities in our area. The associations of Beekman, Kips Bay, Manhattan East Community Association (MECA), Murray Hill, Sutton Place, Tudor City, and Turtle Bay represent these communities.

Those receiving plaques were: United States Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (accepted by Press Secretary Phil Craft); New York State Senator Liz Krueger; New York State Assemblymen Steve Sanders and Jonathan Bing (accepted by Chief of Staff Julie Hendricks); City Council Speaker Gifford Miller; and City Councilwoman Eva Moskowitz.
