THURSDAY: Westchester and NJ Sketchers at Memorial Park in Nyack

A joint event co-hosted by Cathy Gutterman and Margaret Casagrande

Come join the Westchester and New Jersey Sketchers in Nyack, NY for a day of sketching along the Hudson River waterfront in the Village of Nyack Memorial Park.  You'll have a great views of the river and the new Mario Cuomo (Tappan Zee) Bridge.  This 11 acre park has a butterfly garden and a gazebo, as well as baseball and basketball courts, a children’s playground, skateboard ramps, and a splash pad.    From the shoreline you can also see ruins of an abandoned ship in the river.

The Nyack Library at 59 South Broadway is short walk from the park.  It is an example of a Carnegie Library from the 19th century.  Also nearby, at 82 North Broadway, is the Edward Hopper House, which is an 11 minute walk from the park.  On Thursdays it is open from 1-5 PM.  Timed-tickets are highly recommended.


DATE: THURSDAY May 25, 2023

LOCATION: Memorial Park 51 Piermont Avenue, Nyack, NY 10960

Parking: Free on Piermont Ave.  You may also find  parking on Depew Ave. or the side streets.  Metered parking is in effect elsewhere.  Be sure to READ the SIGNS.

TIME: 10:00 AM We will meet near the top of the park by the World War I Memorial.  



  • Bring your own snack or lunch and water.  There are cafes on South Broadway and Main Street, but it would be best to visit them on your way to the park or after the sketch event.
