No image of Brooklyn is more iconic than that of a family or a group of friends hanging out on their front stoop on a sunny day. In a borough full of front stoops, here are five of the most historic.

7 Arlington Place, Bedford Stuyvesant
7 Arlington Place is the famed Bed Stuy townhouse where Spike Lee shot Crooklyn in 1994. The film takes place during the summer of 1974 and centers around a family living in the neighborhood. The theatrical release poster features the family all gathered on the brownstone stoop. But the neighborhood has dramatically changed since Spike Lee lived here: this Bed Stuy brownstone last sold for $1,700,000.
