SATURDAY: Sketch Fifth Avenue Blooms


Fifth Avenue Blooms!

Event Suggested by Helene Lacaille

New York’s most fashionable street is in full bloom.  “Fifth Avenue Blooms” is a walkable floral experience - a veritable river of flowers on the Big Apple's most iconic street.  The flower walk extends from 50th Street up to 60th by the entrance to the park.  Capture the essence of spring in New York City.

Our Morning Meeting Spot


WHAT:  We will be sketching Fifth Avenue Blooms.  The event takes place on Fifth Avenue between E. 50 near St. Patrick's Cathedral, and extends north up to 60th Street by the entrance to Central Park.  Sketch what you like in that area.  Anyone sketching on Fifth Avenue is likely to be an Urban Sketchers.  (see map below)

WHEN:   We’ll be there from  10:00 AM until 3 PM on Saturday, May 4th, 2024 

WHERE:  We will meet at 630 Fifth Avenue, by the statue of Atlas Holding the World.  It's located across the street from Saint Patrick's Cathedral.

LUNCH:  12:00 Noon.  We'll meet at the tiny Pocket Park located at 3 East 53 Street.

AFTERNOON:  1 PM - Back to sketching on Fifth Avenue.

Show and Tell:   3:00 PM.  Meet by the (The Pulitzer) fountain in front of the Plaza Hotel. We’ll share our drawings, tell art stories and discuss our art supplies.  (I’m just guessing about the second two items, but we’ll definitely do the first.)  

(In case the weather becomes uncomfortable, our back-up S&T location will be the public space at 550 Madison Avenue (between 55-56th Streets on Madison Ave)


-  Bring a stool - it gives you so many more options.
