Mayor Bloomberg Wants Banksy Arrested In New York
While most of New York City is loving the exciting outdoors residency of famous UK street artist Banksy, at least one city official isn’t amused.
Mayor Bloomberg think he’s a vandal, not an artist, and claims that cops will arrest Banksy if they catch him putting up stencils on buildings anywhere in New York. It was also noted that graffiti “is a sign of loss and decay”, echoing the Giuliani years of the Broken Windows Theory.
What a buzzkill.
