Community activists, politicos and local residents came to the Vladeck Houses on Henry Street last night for National Night Out, an event intended to improve relationships with neighborhood police precincts.  7th Precinct Commanding Officer Peter Venice and Captain David Miller were there, along with officials from PSA 4, the housing bureau responsible for the Lower East Side’s public housing developments.

City Council members Margaret Chin and Rosie Mendez, Comptroller John Liu and Community Board 3 Chair Gigi Li made the rounds. There was food, a petting zoo, dunking tank and other activities. In past years, the 7th Precinct and PSA 4 have held separate events but a decision was made to join forces this year.  Click through for a few more photos.
