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.

Just minutes after Banksy posted his new piece Tuesday, crowds quickly gathered to admire the drawing on a building on Staple Street at Jay Street in TriBeca.

During his residency, titled “Better Out Than In,” Banksy is unveiling a new piece in New York each day, but it’s up to his fans to find the art.

“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.
