As we mentioned yesterday, teams of whitewashers clashed with a postering company during the second New York Street Advertising Takeover. The takeover, convened by the Public Ad Campaign, aimed to to take back hundreds of advertising locations that "wild posting" company NPA has placed around the city.

Five people were arrested. One couple was painting flowers on a whitewashed Mulberry Street billboard, the Post reports, which had a quote from the Public Ad Campaign's Jordan Seiler, "New York is a beautiful, wonderful city. When you fill it with commercial messages, you turn it into a commercial space rather than a public space...The city has lost several millions of dollars by not combating unlawfully posted commercial billboards. he enforcement is arbitrary."
