STRAIGHT OUTTA…. Brooklyn? Spike Lee took it upon himself to dedicate a Brooklyn street name to his classic 1989 movie, Do The Right Thing.

BK residents seem to be thrilled about it for the simple fact that Do The Right Thing is one of the more popular Brooklyn-based movies. Check out the new street sign in the gallery!
