SATURDAY: Sketch the Red Hook Waterfront

watercolor by Thomas Morbitzer

Event suggested and planned by Shawne Cooper

Hop on a quick ferry ride and you’re transported to a world with a small-town vibe, waterfront sketching with expansive views of the NY Harbor and Lady Liberty, fresh lobster rolls, sublime key lime pie, and the opening of an exhibition of Coney Island art that includes work by a few of our friends. 

And, if you stick around after Show ‘n’ Tell, you can even mingle with mermaids.

What  Sketch Red Hook via the NY ferry.

Question:  Do I have to get there by ferry?

Answer:  Absolutely not.  Feel free to meet us there!

Where The ferry leaves from Pier 11/Wall St (see map below)

When Be at the ferry dock in time to catch the 9:51 AM ferry. It’s 2 stops and 17 minutes total to Red Hook. (If you miss the boat, ferries run every half hour.) And don't worry about finding the others; if you see anyone sketching in Red Hook, chances are, they’re an Urban Sketcher.

How:   To get to the Wall St. ferry by subway:

· N, R, W to Cortlandt 

·  2, 3, 4, or 5 to Fulton 

· 2, 3 to Wall St.

· 4, 5 to Bowling Green 

· 1 to South Ferry 


-      Bring a stool if you have one, it gives you more options.

-      Prepare for sunshine.


If you can’t find us

There are no fees.   All drawing skill levels are welcome.
