New York Residents Capitalize on Banksy Art

Storyful

For the 10th day of graffiti artist Banksy’s “Better out than In” residency in New York city, he sprayed an image of a beaver gnawing through a ‘no parking’ sign. Tourists came to view the artwork but were dismayed to discover that a group of men had decided to cover it with garbage bags and cardboard. The men then stood in front of it and insisted that people pay them a fee in order to take pictures. Credit: Lee Alexander.
