Staten Island, New York, United States

The Staten Island Clown

For an entire week in January, the residents of Staten Island were talking about a lurking clown. He was seen behind trees, at traffic signs, and holding balloons. No one knew where he would show up next. Photos appeared on Twitter, Instagram and the like. Finally, the day came when the stunt was revealed. He was the brainchild of a production company called Fuzz on the Lens. Because of the similarity to Stephen King's clown Pennywise, even he chimed in. Terrifying, but it seems kind of fun. Every town needs something to talk about.
