Riverside South Park and More

My day started on the LIRR catching the 7:40 train from Ronkonkoma. There are always a few people I can sketch on the trip in so the trip passes fairly quickly.

Riverside South Park had some nice views to sketch. I liked seeing underneath the road above.

This one includes what is left of the 69th St Transfer Bridge which allowed the transfer of railroad cars from the rail line to car floats which crossed the Hudson River to the Weehawken Yards in NJ. Nora is sketching on the right.

Jeff was busy with his big sketchbook.

Mark asked someone nearby to take a photo of the whole group before some of the sketchers left for the day.

After lunch we walked a ways south and came to sculptures and gardens.

After our show and tell I headed back to Penn Station. I had about 15 minutes to sketch a few other commuters waiting for their train.

And here is one last sketch done on the train going home.

My thanks to Nora and Laura for organizing the day at this great location!
