Brooklyn, stand up!

For the past several weeks, the Brooklyn Academy of Music has been hosting a Spike Lee restrospective, and now the man himself is getting into a celebratory mood. He’s hosting a block party to mark the anniversary of his 1989 classic, “Do the Right Thing.” It runs from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday on Stuyvesant Avenue between Lexington and Quincy avenues. Producer-writer-director Lee will MC the event.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams is also expected to make Saturday “Do the Right Thing Day.”
