Best Place to Pretend You're an Extra from a Spike Lee Flick (2008)

Prospect Park Band Shell

The Prospect Park Band shell and its summer concert series provide the perfect backdrop for the multiculti fashion show that is Brooklyn's equivalent of the village square. You get all the Afro-urban types found in vintage Lee cinema and his much-vaunted boho wonderland of Fort Greene: hip-hop heads, black lesbian separatists, Afrocentric couples raising babies for the Revolution!, roughnecks, wiggas, Rastafarians and Trustafarians, signifying militants, partying African émigrés, and old-timer borough residents who celebrate the "diversity" of their side of the river.
