The East River Park Amphitheater in New York's Lower East Side was the site of the classic hip-hop movie Wild Style's final concert featuring The Fantastic Romantic 5, Chief Rocker Busy Bee and The Rock Steady Crew. Wild Style, from 1982, was about graffiti artist Zoro, played by real life graffiti pioneer Lee Quiñones. You can hear samples of the movie in "A to the K" by Cypress Hill, "Genesis" by Nas, "Professor Booty" by Beastie Boys and probably lots more that I don't know about.

The amphitheater, built in 1941, had fallen into disrepair, but it's since been remodeled and once again hosts public concerts.
