Weekday Sketchers at Lighthouse Museum
Only a few blocks from the Ferry Terminal in St. George on Staten Island, The National Lighthouse Museums is treasure trove of all things lighthouses. Situated in a section of the waterfront, among antique buildings that is a destination in and of itself. we could have a great time sketching away the day..., BUT... there is yet another reason to go there! Adjacent to the lighthouse is a pier that juts out into Upper New York Bay, affording us great views of the river, the Verrazzano Brooklyn, Staten Island and Manhattan.
