Sketching the Oldest Streets in NYC
|Hanover Square with Queen Elizabeth II Gardena and India House|
Amid the enormous skyscrapers, the traffic, the people and the noise, it is hard to believe that NYC was once a small village of twisty streets, cobblestones and clapboard buildings. It is still there....if you look ...hard.
Join us as we traverse streets from the very start of New York with names like Stone, William, Pearl, and Beaver. Come and capture some of the buildings that stood there when horses and carts rode past them with names like Frances Tavern, India House and a row of Dutch houses on William Street
Read the articles below for some history of the area and the street names.
We will start at Hanover Square and the Queen Elizabeth II Garden. (can you believe there is a garden in NYC dedicated to the Queen?!?). From there we will fan out to sketch what strikes our fancy, then come back for lunch and show what we have found.
