Several men have staked out a new Banksy piece in East New York and are charging $20 for folks trying to get a picture, or even sneak a basic look, according to comments made on the StreetArtJamz Instagram account today.
A video has also surfaced of the men negotiating with a potential customer via the CAPNYC Instagram account.
Worry not, however, you can view the piece here for free.
Based on the timestamps of the Instagrams, it seems that over the course of an hour, the Banksy was monetized by the entrepreneurs. The above picture was taken around 2PM, and about an hour later, a picture posted at 3PM shows that visual access to the street art had become restricted to a pay-per-view basis, see below.
