do or die
DO or DIE mural in Spike Lee’s movie is at 164 Stuyvesant Ave. The flags on the “Bed-Stuy — Do Or Die” mural reflect the neighborhood’s varied racial makeup, while the slogan makes is clear that life in Bed-Stuy always has high stakes. The mural was painted specifically for the film above a vacant lot, but today is obstructed by newly-built housing. The last remnants can be seen slowly fading on the wall. More on the film here.
