The city is starting to crack down on illegal billboards outside neighborhood businesses. You know, those flyer-filled frames with sponsorships written above. Apparently many of these ad spaces are not properly permitted. We’re told a few in these parts were carted away within the last week … or cleared and painted white.
This crackdown presented a prime opportunity for street artist Hanksy to decorate. Meet the “polar bear in a blow storm.” As in yayo or cocaine.
The Sharpie art is located near his usual spot on Orchard just south of Canal Street. It probably won’t last long.
