The twenty-first installment of Banksy's "Better Out Than In" street art series popped up in South Bronx on Monday, Oct. 21, 2013. The image with the message "Ghetto 4 Life" immediately caught some flack, with local residents criticizing the piece for being a bit offensive and 'lazy,' according to New York Daily News.
Banksy's "hammer boy" stencil appeared on Sunday, Oct. 20, 2013 on 79th Street on the Upper West Side. According to reports by Gothamist, a man tried to spray paint over the piece but the crowd stopped him before he could deface the it.

A crowd gathers to view Banksy's work Oct. 18, 2013 on West 24th Street in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. On his website, the mysterious street artist posted a picture of the two paintings accompanied by a security guard and asks, "Are you the sort of person who enjoys going to art galleries but wished they had more gravel in them? Then this temporary exhibition space is for you." He then prompts spectators with "a bench, some carpet and complementary refreshments." The exhibit was open to the public through Sunday.
Work by British graffiti artist Banksy is displayed on Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013, in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. The building owner has hired security guards and installed a metal gate to protect a work by Banksy. Cara Tabachnick, whose family owns the building, said the goal is to preserve the artwork "so it can be viewed and enjoyed." Most of the Banksy works that have gone up have been tagged over by others, and some have been completely erased.
