Banksy's "Better Out Than In" Hits Greenpoint

Banksy has taken his “Better Out Than In” project to New York City’s Greenpoint neighborhood for his latest piece. The piece in question is a simple yet poignant message that reads “This site contains blocked messages” on a wall that appears to have been painted over. Whether this piece alludes to the op-ed that the controversial artist penned and which was subsequently rejected by The New York Times or is meant as a more general statement of the ongoing debate on censorship is for the viewer to decide. You can read the artist’s op-ed here.
