Banksy Debut in New York City

You can follow Banksy’s NYC exploits on his website, where it looks like he’ll be posting images throughout the month of October.

His second piece in the series is located on 25th Street on the north side between 10th and 11th avenues closer to the 10th Avenue side. We ran over to take the picture above and were surprised to see not very many people around, so if you hurry you can still get a good look.

To give you a sense of scale and to show you that there really aren’t many people milling about, here’s a wider angle:

Near Banksy’s first New York piece, he also spray-painted a phone number (1-800-656-4271 #1) where people can call for a recorded message in the style of a museum audio tour. It’s funnier than it is informative and, for a toll free call, completely worth your time. You can also listen online.

We didn’t see any such number for this second piece, and there’s no similar audio recording posted to the Banksyny.com site at the moment.

If you’re near the Chelsea neighborhood, why not take a coffee break and go see something beautiful?
