The Last Day: New Yorkers Respond to Banksy’s ‘Residency’ and the Times Maps the Madness
British street artist Banksy has taken New York by storm during his “residency,” creating a month-long scavenger hunt sending fans to all five boroughs in search of a heart-shaped balloon, a “quote” by Plato, a slaughterhouse truck delivering imprisoned stuffed animals, a go kart-riding grim reaper, a painting on a painting auctioning for over $300,000 and more. Today, Halloween, is to be the final day of the Banksy madness. The New York Times has published an assorted account of New Yorkers’ responses to Banksy. Read it while you scout Banksy’s final piece in Queens, and check out the New York Times’ map while you’re at it.
