Tonight is the Night Out Against Crime

Tonight is the annual Night Out Against Crime. Many people are shutting down the streets, pulling out the barbecues and getting to know their neighbors.

Here’s a map we’ve made of different parties going on throughout Ballard. We pulled these locations from the comment thread of a previous post. If your block isn’t on here and you’re holding a gathering, add it in comments below. Be sure to send us pictures of your celebration! Email us at: tips@myballard.com

Thanks Swedes, I'm not holding or attending one, but I can add the block north of NW Lone, south of Market Street, on the frontage street of Swedish. I saw the signage this morning on my walk.
I'd guess that if folks can get out, they'll find several good gatherings.

Thanks for organizing this!

NW 73rd St., between 8th Ave. NW and Dibble Ave. NW, is hosting a gathering comprised of folks from that very short block and of people on Dibble Ave. NW both North & South of NW 73rd.

We're holding one on NW 59th St, between 14th & 11th AVE NW.

Historically (and looking at the map here) there are a LOT of blocked off streets in that area (rectangle between 14th, 8th, 59th and 62nd)

Yet another useful map, Geeky Swedes! I've got one on either side of me, no shortage of participants it looks like.

On the Forum someone posted that Gilman Park is available for a gathering. http://www.myballard.com/forum/topic.php?id=1352 Though I don't think anything has been organized and I haven't seen anyone express interest in going there. Still I plan on swinging by since there is nothing specifically on my block.

yve – I'm on 51st between 8th and 9th. That stretch doesn't have anything planned. Hope ya'll are ok if I stop by and say hi!

There is apparently one on 9th Ave NW and 59th/60th. I'll be going to that one; look for the guy in the yellow Steelers shirt with the black lab/sharpei mix.
