As the crowning finish to his recent Inside Out NYC project that covered Times Square with images of everyday New Yorkers, French social activist street artist JR took over a prime billboard in the center of Manhattan's neon circus yesterday. The giant black & white eye in the sky sits atop a building already fully wrapped in JR's imagery, making his domination of midtown complete.
