SATURDAY: Sketch NYC’s 6th Borough




If there was a 6th borough it would have to be Hoboken, NJ, where NYC is so close you can almost reach out and touch it.  The Manhattan Skyline is incredible when viewed from Hoboken, with its majestic sweep of the Hudson River,
train terminals, piers, historic streets and architecture you will love sketching Hoboken's many views.


WHEN:  We’ll meet at 10 AM - sketching until 3 PM on Saturday, June 10, 2023  Sleeping late?  Come anyway - we'll be there.

WHERE:  We’re meeting at the entrance to Pier A Park, a short walk from the ferry or the Path train.  (see map below)

The Path Train from 33 St. ↔ Journal Square (via Hoboken)
(Path train - at the intersection of 32nd Street and Sixth Avenue)
Leave 33rd at 9:38 arrive Hoboken at 9:58
Other departure times:   9:23,  10:08, 10:23, 10:38, etc.

The Ferry runs every 30 minutes on the hour and also on the half hour, however, the first ferry doesn’t leave until 10:20.  The weekend cost is $6 each way.

By Car:  Street parking in Hoboken is challenging.  If you intend to drive you might want to pre-book a parking spot, which costs about $30.  (I just checked and entered “Hoboken, Path Train)

LUNCH:  12:00 PM  - Location to be determined.  (Probably Pier A or somewhere along the riverwalk.)  Bring your lunch or purchase from the local vendors.

AFTERNOON:  1:00 PM  Back to sketching

SHOW AND TELL 3 PM  Location to be determined - probably our lunch spot.  This is the social part of our day where we will share our sketches, tell stories, and probably talk about art supplies.

-  Bring a stool - it gives you more options
