Weekday Skechers at Bowling Green 

Bowling Green – History of New York City

Join us this week at Bowling Green, a spot in NYC that dates back to the Dutch era, from which it gets its name.  It is a small park filled with people taking a break from their offices in the Financial District.  But for our sketching purposes it gives us access to the Raging Bull stature on the north side and on the south side the facade of the beautiful Customs House which houses the Museum of the American Indian and the four "continental" sculptures in the front done by Daniel Chester French (who sculpted the statue of Lincoln in the Lincoln Memorial).   Across the street is Battery Park with  Fort Clinton and the many memorial statues.  Not enough?  Wander down a block and sketch the fantasy Sea Glass Carousel. Still not enough?  How about the St. Elizabeth Seton Chapel, housed in one of the original merchant houses in NYC.
