SATURDAY - Sketching the New High Line

The final leg of the High Line has opened 
and it is completely different than the previous sections.

OCT. 11th - It has wide open views of the Hudson and NJ.  It overlooks the rail yards, and has a great view up 11th Ave.  There are sketchable views looking down at construction sites filled with equipment and the  High Line has wonderful natural plantings and sculptures.  
The new section has aisles that are broad so there is plenty of room to bring a chair.

When:  We will begin at 10:00 AM.  Running late?  Come anyway, join us when you can. 

Where:  We will  meet at the bleachers. (details below)

How:  by Subway - Take the A, C, E, 1, 2, or 3 train to Penn Station (34th St) and walk West on 34th St. There is a ramp entrance in the middle of the block, on the South side of 34th St between 11th Ave and West St.  When you come up the ramp and walk a short ways toward the river, you'll see the wooden bleachers where we will meet.

Lunch:  At 12:15 PM we will meet for lunch at the south east corner of 23rd and 10th at the NY Burger Co. There are plenty of non-meat items on the menu. The stairs to enter/exit the High Line at lunch time are at 29th/30th Streets, and also at 23rd St.

Afternoon:  At 1:15 PM it's back up to the High Line 

The Throwdown or Show and Tell:  We will meet at 4:00 PM to share sketches at Billy Marks West located at 332 Ninth Ave (29th St).


The forecast is "ify",
but we're optimists

We have a great back-up planned 
but would prefer to save it for  the colder months to come.  

A confirmation email will be sent at 6:30 AM on Saturday to confirm or share details for our back-up
