Fort Greene Park, She's Gotta Have It
Do The Right Thing may be arguably Spike Lee's most iconic Brooklyn movie, but the locations can be a little tough to track down (Sal's Pizzeria never even existed, for one). And really, there aren't a lot of movies that make better use of New York locations than She's Gotta Have It does with Fort Greene Park, which plays a role in nearly all of the movie's pivotal scenes (and since earned the nickname "She's Gotta Have It Park" for its close association with the film). The Prison Ship Martyr's monument has long since been scrubbed of its graffiti, but go on a hot, muggy day and you'll still get the idea.
