Banksy Draws 9/11 Tribute On TriBeca Building

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Renowned British street artist, Banksy, has posted his latest piece from his month-long residency in New York City.

The work is a 9/11 tribute featuring the Twin Towers.

The charcoal drawing at sidewalk level is the size of a suitcase and has an orange daisy approximately where the plane struck, 1010 WINS' Al Jones reported.

"It's exciting, it's an event," one fan told Jones.

"It's a rush," another fan said. "It's a game, a scavenger hunt."

Banksy posts photos of his latest works each day on both his website and Instagram; fans have also been putting images on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

On Saturday, Banksy set up a stall in Central Park with original signed works that he was selling for only $60 apiece.

His works typically sell for thousands of dollars.
