SATURDAY: Sketch the Red Hook Waterfront

This is a good one, - so much going on.   We’re spending Saturday in Red Hook.   We’ll be getting there by boat - the ferry at Pier 11/Wall St.  There’s no neighborhood in NYC that has the vibe of Red Hook - lots to see, and lots to sketch and there's a big art show going on too.

The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition is running a national juried art show, More Art of Coney Island which will be opening on Saturday - July 30, 2022.  Three of our regular Urban Sketchers are showing their work, and we’re all excited.


What:   We’ll be sketching in Red Hook, and we’ll be getting there by ferry from Manhattan.

Where:   The ferry leaves from Pier 11/Wall St,  (see map below)

When:  Be at the ferry at 9:30 AM on Saturday morning for the salt water journey.  If you miss the boat a new one leaves about every half hour.   Anyone sketching in Red Hook is probably an Urban Sketcher!


-   By Subway to get to the ferry:  

  • Cortlandt - N, R, W
  • Fulton - 2, 3, 4, 5,
  • Wall St.  2, 3
  • Bowling Green - 4, 5

     (see map below).

Lunch12:00 Noon .  Bring your own or rely on local vendors.

Afternoon:  See the art show.  Opens at 1 PM  481 Van Brunt St.  (see second map below)

Show and Tell:  3:00 PM - We’ll find a likely spot  to share our work, tell stories and talk about what artists talk about.


-     Bring a hat and be prepared for sunshine  

-      Bring a stool if you have one, it gives you more options.
