When I went into the city on Saturday I took the Long Island Railroad in. They were forecasting rain for the afternoon, so I didn't want to have a long distance to drive home from the subway if it was raining. The LIRR train station on the other hand is only about 10 minutes from me. It was a relaxing ride and I was able to sketch.
This lady had a suitcase with her and told someone across from her (who I couldn't see) that she had been watching her grandkids for the last week and was heading back home to Pennsylvania...grandma goes home I guess.
The man on the bottom was checking his cell phone on the way into the city. The woman above him was with a group of 3 other women on the return trip. They were very obviously having a good time...lots of laughs and some interesting conversation.
Sometimes I have a few minutes in Penn Station before my train is scheduled to depart. There are always lots of people standing around. I had about 10 minutes to sketch this group.
I made this young man look a bit older than he actually was. He looked like he was about 14 years old...and so cute!
