Today's Banksy's is pretty dissapointing, I was expecting something HUGE to coincide with Halloween. These Balloon Letters tag was discovered in Queens at 35th and Borden Ave by the Long Island Expressway.
Here are the coppers confiscating 'Exhibits B,A,N,K,S & Y' :(
Jimmy Chiang, 31, David Aguilar, 25, and Ronald Galarza, 24, were arrested on charges of criminal trespassing, and Mr. Chiang was also charged with criminal mischief, a police spokesman said.
Today's Banksy's is pretty funny if you consider that this cheetah could be interpreted as cheater!! Hello A-Rod? This is loacted on Jerome at E 162nd St.
Today's Banksy's was purchased from this Housing Works shop 3 months ago modified and signed by the artist and then re-donated back to the very place it was originally purchased. The painting was on display for many hours until they received an anonymous phone call telling them what they had. :)

Here is the first look at Banksy's installation for today October 25th. It's the Grim Reaper in a bumper car a la, this set up is at 76 E Houston and Elizabeth. At night when the sky is black this is going to look awesome!!
"Tonight through Sunday, dusk until midnight."
Is this going to be a New York City rush hour piece?
...time has been pushed back to 6pm now
Here is yesterday's Banksy, this was put on the side of Larry Flynt's Hustler XXX Club at W 51st St & 12th in Hell's Kitchen. I have no idea how he pulled this piece off. This is a crazy busy corner on a very busy street that does not slow down until 4/5am. Props Banksy

In the words of the legendary Beastie Boys... "hey ladies!!"
This piece is called 'Ghetto For Life' and it was found at E 153rd St and Elton Ave in the South Bronx. This is not necessarily the best piece of Banksy's tenure here in NYC. I would've personally not glorified the word 'Ghetto', but that's me and he is Banksy so it is what it is. This is going to get hit hard and fast by taggers, mark my words.

Plexiglassed, Roll Down Gate Installed and now officially Swizz'd
I have no idea what the purpose of joke is behind this video - Banksy, today you suck!
Banksy has dropped this clever piece on top of a filled in archway in Williamsburg, which was actually erroneously listed as Bed Stuy. This is a fantastic use of finding a unique wall and using that very wall to inspire the graffiti instead of coming up with an idea and then looking for a place to install it.
**update, awesome photo found on IG
