Wild Style amphitheater

Week 2: Tuesday 11:00am (9/7/2021) 10-mile run to check out the East River. I took some photos of the East River Park amphitheater (entrance bridge in Corlears Hook Park on Cherry Street just south of Grand). In the early 1980s it was so abandoned that the  crew of Wild Style (the first full-length film documenting hip hop) could just claim it, spray paint it, and put on the evening concert that closes out the film. Link to Wild Style here (go to 1:02:43).
