New Banksy Piece Shows a Man Waiting in Vain

While at first glance today's new Banksy piece could look like any man off the street patiently waiting for his date (love the dropping flower petals), step back a bit, and see how the story changes when you factor in the clever context. After a day off due to “police activity,” Banksy is back putting up this interesting piece on the side of the Hustler Club in Hell's Kitchen. His caption reads, “Waiting in vain…at the door of the club.”

It's day 24 and we're now about a week away before Banky wraps up his outdoor exhibition on the streets of New York. We'll be sad when this ends.
