Latest addition to Kenny Scharf's mural: Security cameras

The Kenny Scharf mural here on Houston and the Bowery has been bombed twice now... (here ... and here)

After this, several people mentioned that someone mounted security cameras here... Sure enough, as we saw last night...

What are you looking at?

Paranoid murals make me nervous. Will a security guard be next?

EV Grieve! Are these real? Really really real?

@Marina

Yeah, I'm not sure if they're actually hooked up to anything...

If they are not hooked up--then I think that's funny. If they are--WTF!!??

The best way to find out if they're hooked up is to spread silly putty on their lenses and see if that provokes a reaction. BTW in the old NY security cameras at Bowery and Houston would have been stolen and traded for smack sold down the street. Oh I miss those days...Say I wonder what the street value is of those cameras? I could use some used shoes.

@marty

they tried to put up a security guard there when fairey's mural was up on that wall, and this is what happened
