Spike Lee hosts free block party in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Spike Lee gets his own street

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the critically acclaimed  film Do The Right Thing, director Spike Lee is hosting a free block party in Brooklyn. The 1989 film was originally shot in the Bedford Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn, New York on Stuyvesant Avenue between Lexington and Quincy Streets. Brooklyn borough president, Eric Adams announced on June 25, that the free block party would be hosted Saturday, June 28, from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., on Do the Right Thing Way!

Recently the news was released that the same block (Stuyvesant Avenue) would have its name changed to “Do the Right Thing” Way paying homage to the Brooklyn-based movie.
