New York City Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly will preside over the dedication of a new station house in the 33rd Precinct on Friday, Oct. 4, at 11:30 a.m. The ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at the station house, which is at the corner of Amsterdam Avenue at 170th Street in Washington Heights.
On Oct. 4, 1994, the New York Police Department divided Manhattan's northernmost precinct, the 34th, into two precincts to better serve the growing populations of Inwood and Washington Heights. Since then, the new 33rd Precinct has operated out of temporary, pre-fab facilities. The new station house is located among shops, schools and a large park, offering police greater contact with the community.
