The first piece of U.K. street-artist Banksy's new show in New York, located at 18 Allen Street.

Legendary street-artist Banksy has launched a month-long show on the streets of New York, accompanied by an audio guide accessible over phone or at his website. “Before you, you will see a ‘spray art’ by the artist Ban-sky [sic],” the voice message will tell you about the show’s first piece, located at 18 Allen Street. “Or maybe not; it’s probably been painted over by now.”

Street-art fans have been abuzz for weeks, ever since posters started appearing in Los Angeles, carrying a Banksy image and the show’s name Better Out Than In. The design of the artist’s website suggests that a new piece will appear daily throughout the month.
