SATURDAY: Sketch the Two Bridges


Views that will make you Happy you Love to Sketch

An on-location sketching event - July 31, 2021

Sitting on the edge of the East River, resting between the Triborough Bridge and Hell Gate Bridge, the park offers shoreline sights that are a sketcher's delight.  Astoria Park is on the west shore of Queens, extends from south of the Triborough Bridge to north of the Hell Gate Bridge. With a panoramic view of the skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan in the south to the Hell Gate channel in the north, the scenery presents the diverse landscape of New York City.

The Park is located at 19th Street between Astoria Park South and Ditmars Blvd, in Queens.

To get there - take the N Train towards Astoria - Ditmars Blvd.  It's the second to last stop at the Astoria Blvd Station.  

... and WALK:
To get to Astoria Park from the subway walk along Hoyt Avenue, heading  towards the Triborough Bridge and the harbor.  It's a flat 8 block walk.  (SEE MAP BELOW)

We'll meet at Hoyt Avenue and 19th Street, which has a great view of the bridge and is the South West Corner of the Park.  Sketching starts at 10 AM.  Running late?  Come anyway, we'll be there.

  • Bring a stool or a chair if you have one - it gives you more options.  
  • Although there are places to buy food, the choices are limited.  Consider bringing lunch.

There are no fees. All drawing skill levels are welcome
