Video: Banksy - When the streets get real and you might get taxed

October 11, 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.
