SATURDAY: Sketch NYC's Most Beautiful Block

Actually there are loads of candidates for this award, and, as Urban Sketchers, we are probably in an excellent position to have an informed opinion on the subject.  Come join us and see what you think.

West 10th Street (Between 5th & 6th), Greenwich Village

Just four blocks south from rowdy 14th Street, this peaceful respite lets you escape everything you’ve ever complained about in New York City. Brownstones on a beautiful, tree-lined street.  Protected by the Greenwich Village Historic District, this residential area harkens back to a time when notable residents like Mark Twain (14 W. 10th) and journalist Joseph Mitchell (44 W. 10th St.) lived here. Both ornate and simple homes line the block, many with plants creeping out windows or sprouting on rooftops, making it an urban oasis in the center of Downtown. (


WHEN:   This coming SATURDAY, June 15, 2019, at 10 AM.  Sleeping late?   Meet us there - we'll be the people who are sketching.

WHERE:   West 10th Street between 5th Avenue and 6th Avenue.  Well meet at the Church of the Ascension which is located at the north corner of 5th Avenue and West 10th Street

HOW:   Close subway stops include:

LUNCH:  12:00 Noon to 1 PM - Bring your own or purchase from the many stores and vendors in easy walking distance.  We'll eat together in the streets.  Possible alternative location to eat - the Garden at the Jefferson Market Library - one block away at 6th and 9th St.

AFTERNOON:  1 PM  Back to sketching the quiet street scenes of the West Village.

SHOW and TELL:  3 PM - We'll designate a spot on W 10th to share drawings and tell stories.
