Banksy Work Washed Away in Williamsburg, Too

Banksy, the Kim Kardashian of street art, has taken his tour of New York City to Brooklyn, specifically, the friendly territory of Williamsburg. Or so you would think. Animal New York found his "The Musical" tag slapped onto existing neighborhood graffiti (including "Dirty Underwear," "Occupy!," and "Playground Mob"), but most of it is already gone.

Informed mid-clean (see above) that the work was part of a street exhibition by a famous artist, one local said, "I should build a wall around it and start charging money." Really, though, why not?
