Paris: Street Art Capital?

As soon as I decided to leave Paris, I've started to discover new facets of this wonderful city.
I just saw a slide show by the BBC & Lonely Planet, saying that Paris is a global capital of street art.

Was I wrong to have thought that NYC is much more focused on the arts in the street?
Indeed, I have often noticed the various works in the streets...
However, I've never asked about the role of Paris in the development of this artistic movement.
Should we, perhaps, consider a special tour on street art for tourists and Parisians?
What do you think, Paris is the capital of street art? Or you know one another?
