The Word On The Street, Part II: Special Post-Banksy Edition

Want BanksyNYS

As spied today on East 7th Street. On a related note (and in closing), I want to give a shout-out to this piece by Jilly Ballistic

I'm giving away 50 "I survived Banksy 2013" mini posters at the corner of 17th St and 8th Ave. First come, first served. Enjoy.

and thank her for giving one! I hung it next to our front door (underneath a sign reading “Want Candy”*) for the edification of trick or treaters as I was handing out chocolaty goodness yesterday. It elicited some interesting responses. For example:

What is a Banksy?

And (from a woman amused by this, after I told her about the previous):

How did he not know? Doesn’t he read the news?

I guess not.

*Some of the responses to this were quite fascinating. But that is the subject of another post— perhaps even an essay.


Tell me what you're thinking...
