BANKSY: HEY BEAV! THE BEAVER…

Turns out, yesterday’s site was just a little too dangerous and sketchy to be hanging around for any long period of time. I was going to go, but I kept getting reports from trusted sources that it would be a wasted trip. For the first time in Banksy’s NYC residency, there were actually two guys (not associated with him) that were covering the beaver with cardboard and making people pay to  snap pictures! From what I hear, in that neighborhood, you don’t argue with such an arrangement. I would have been furious, though, so it’s good that I didn’t go. Reports also came out that two guys unsuccessfully tried to hammer the beaver out of the wall, did some damage to it, but finally gave up when they realized they just didn’t have the proper tools. Here are three photos taken live on the scene by Jermaine Bell (can’t thank him enough!)

KAYE’S LEOPARD

I think this is a leopard stencil by street artist, Kaye. I’ve never seen the leopard without the cyclist image nearby, but here it is: the lone leopard.
