Banksy’s The Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill opens in NYC.
With the appearance of several Banksy adverts sporting his signature rats popping up around downtown New York over the last two weeks, as well as Lazarides being in town with the Outsiders NY show, there has been a lot of speculation about a Banksy show and last night it appeared… in the form of a pet store. The pet store is officially open daily 10am-midnight through October 31, but you can see it from the street at any time of day. Most of the people stopping thought they were about to look at a normal pet store, only to start laughing with surprise as they saw the animatronics and immediately calling over everyone they were with. Here’s the view from the street.
