Banksy’s penultimate NYC piece in the Bronx by Yankee Stadium is no more.
It only lasted a few days before someone painted over it.
It seems Banksy couldn’t resist the lure of the Bronx and came back to throw up on a wall across from Yankee Stadium this time a big cat (a cheetah?) with what appears to be tags adorning its body.
The absurdity in Melrose just increased a few notches. The building owner has installed a gate to cover and protect Banksy’s “Ghetto 4 Life” piece on East 153rd and Elton.
Whenever major art exhibits come to the city, oftentimes the Bronx is not going to be a stop on the tour so it was to many Bronxites’ surprise when a Banksy appeared overnight in Melrose.
Well over a thousand fans flocked to our neighborhood to photograph the latest Banksy and take selfies with it.
