Video: Banksy - When the streets get real and you might get taxedStreet Art // Friday, 11 Oct 2013
The most interesting thing to come out of the Bansky madness that has swept New York is when one of his pieces ends up in a notoriously dangerous Brooklyn neighborhood and locals start charging people to view it. What are the reasonable rate residents of East New York are charging to see this little beaver? $20 (£12.50). Apparently, the “entrepreneurs” attempted to chisel it off the wall and failed. “We tryin to get some bread, this is my hood. I could step on this s*** it don’t matter to me.” "It's worth more to you that this is here than to me. If you want to take a picture it's going to cost something or the s*** could just get broke.” Welcome to the streets of Brooklyn. S*** just got real.
