SUNDAY: Our Labor Day Sketch in Oyster Bay


Suggested and hosted by Suzala

Another great neighborhood around NYC that can be reached by public transportation.  Oyster Bay is a delightful hamlet on the south shore of Long Island Sound.  The town has tree lined streets and cute stores.  The Sound is nearby with water views, boats and docks we can draw.  Several sketchers live nearby so it’s a local neighborhood for them.


WHEN:  We’ll meet around 11:30 AM - sketching until 3:15 PM on SUNDAY, September 3rd, 2023  

WHERE:  We will meet at the Gazebo, (a triangular park at Shore Ave and Audrey Ave)


  • You first need to get to the Jamaica train station.  You can leave from Grand Central or Penn Station.  You will need to check departure times.  Leave enough time to catch the ...
  • Long Island Railroad, 10:12 AM train that goes from Jamaica to Oyster Bay.  The LIRR arrives at Oyster Bay at 11:16 and it’s a short walk to the Gazebo
  • The LIRR is $10.75 / or $7.25 for seniors
