A Very Special Pet Store (and Charcoal Grill)
Four days ago, a new store opened in downtown Manhattan. Passersby quickly noticed that there was something . . . well . . . unusual about the shop. The window displays include a sleeping leopard, a bunny wearing makeup, and chicken mcnuggets eating BBQ sauce.
Inside, it only gets weirder. There are animatronic pet sausages in glass cages and fish stix swimming in bowls.
It took people a few days to figure out that the person behind the strangest store in New York is . . . BANKSY!
I can't wait to take a look! The store/art exhibit (located on 7th Avenue between 4th St. and Bleeker) is open from 10AM to Midnight until October, 31.
