Back in New York, Part 5: Looking Up

Looking up. Buildings everywhere. The everyday, the famous.
This one has one of those faded advertisements on the top of it, from the days of the elevated line in Manhattan. A water tower and fire escapes complete the scene.

Synagogue by a police station. Only the NYPD parks in front of this building.
The skyline from the East River. Waiting on a boat to take the Circle Line Tour, one of my favorite touristy things to do in the city.

And some more famous buildings, ones I draw every time I’m back in New York.
The Flatiron. With yellow cabs. And daffodils blooming in giant pots.

And from almost the same viewpoint, looking north, the Empire State Building. The guy on the bench was so sweet. I didn’t think he’d noticed I was drawing, but then he politely asked if he could leave before getting up and walking away.
And my favorite building in New York, the beautiful Chrysler Building.

And, all my sketches from my trip to the city, as I post them, here on flickr.

    I really enjoy this sketching style of yours; the sketches look quickly done but really capture the essence/spirit of the scene. Keep sketching!

    Lately, I’ve been drawn to this travel blog since the blogger, Suhita, does not take pictures of places – she sketches them. Check out her eccentric portrayals of New York in her blog post series.
