2. This New Yorker may have just found authentic Banksy pieces in the subway
Thanks to TikTok, word on the street is that one lucky New Yorker may have purchased a genuine Banksy piece in the subway. The story involves one (potentially very lucky) commute home, a mysterious art seller, and tons of confirming responses from social media. Read more about the whole tale here.
3. A 12-story Christmas tree is towering over Fifth Avenue
With the holidays quickly approaching, more and more decorations are hitting the streets.
