 Weekday Sketchers at Pier 97 and Riverside Park 

Hudson River Park's Pier 97 will transform into 'otherworldly' green space  - Curbed NY

This pier was once a cement factory and off limits to the public. It has recently been reconstructed and is now open to the public, Pier 97 is the most recent addition to the 4 mile long Riverside park..  Set in an area of the Hudson River shoreline Called Clinton Cove, named for DeWitt Clinton, "Father of the Erie Canal", US Senator and Mayor of NYC, the park offers playgrounds, seating area, an "All Ages Slide" and a splash park.

What is that?

Come and capture the river scenes, the cityscape with the unusual nearby residential buildings and the public art pieces around the park. One of which is Private Passage...a 30' wine bottle riddled with porthole that allow you to see the inside the bottle to view the recreation of a stateroom on the Queen Mary. 

And speaking of public art installations, we will also wander into Riverside Park to see this year's installation from the Art Students League's Works in Public: Sophie Kahn and Marco Palli.  The two sculptures are installed at the south end of Riverside Park which starts at 57th Street.
