Banksy Hammer Boy Upper West Side

Today’s Banksy piece is located on 79th Street, just east of Broadway, on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. “Hammer Boy” depicts a child playing the  high striker or strongman game commonly found at carnivals. Banksy’s website is silent as to its meaning or purpose only present a photograph of the work.  An individual attempted to deface Hammer Boy but viewers stopped him from defacing Banksy’s work. Over the course of the past few days, New Yorkers have begun taking a stronger stand against those attempting to vandalize Banksy’s works.
