Mayor Eric Adams and police officials joined together in the Bronx Saturday evening to welcome the return of the NYPD’s Saturday Night Lights program.
Last year the NYPD partnered with the Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD), the City’s District Attorneys, and community-based organizations in order to renovate and open 100 new gyms across the city to provide free summer youth sports programming on Saturday nights.
On March 26 the police department pledged to continue that tradition this year. Mayor Adams, Bronx Borough President Vanessa Gibson and other officials gathered at P.S./I.S. 224 located at 345 Brook Ave. in Mott Haven to kick off the start of the spring season.
