Park Slope artist claims responsibility for Trump effigy in Gowanus Canal

Posted: Updated:

A Park Slope artist has taken responsibility for an effigy of President Donald Trump that can be found in the Gowanus Canal.

The story was first reported in the Brooklyn Paper. He spoke with News 12’s Katie Vasquez on Thursday.
