SATURDAY: Sketching by the River


For SATURDAY:  July 22, 2023

There was such a nice breeze sketching last week in Hoboken. The river and a bit of shade made for a wonderful sketch day.  I’m tempted to see if we can continue the magic - this time on the New York side of the river.

We’ll be sketching at Pier 1 and the adjacent Riverside Park South. Running from 59th to 71st Street, the park offers some great sketching venues, including an old gantry that was used to unload barges and railroad cars, interesting water features and, at the 72nd street entrance, an elegant statue of Eleanor Roosevelt as you enter the thin park that runs along the river’s edge.


WHEN:  We’ll meet at 10 AM - sketching until 3 PM on SATURDAY, July 22, 2023  Sleeping late?  Come anyway - we'll be there.

WHERE:  We will meet at the Pier 1 Cafe - at the entrance to the pier. (there are bathrooms, coffee and food at the Cafe.) - See map below.

1, 2, 3 train to 72nd Street.  Walk west to the river.

By Car:  Street parking may be challenging.  

LUNCH:  12:00 PM  - Location to be determined on site.  (Probably need the Pier 1 cafe. 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.

Look who!

-  Bring a stool - it gives you more options  (There are many benches by the park but I’ve noticed they are always in the wrong location.)
-  Be prepared for direct sun and dress accordingly
