This morning my husband and I took the ferry from Orient Point to New London, CT. Of course I used the time to do my Day 5 Inktober sketch.
Last week the NYC Urban Sketchers took a trip to Brooklyn Heights which is right across the river from Manhattan. Although there were wonderful city views, I fell in love with the buildings. This one was near the promenade.
One of the best views was sitting on the promenade right over the traffic of the BQE (the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway). There was so much traffic but it was moving in my direction so fast. I ended up doing part of one car and then adding part of another car.
The brownstones were so great! One was better than the next. I could have sketched there all day...or all week. Don't you just love the detail over the front door of this one?
Just down the same street was another beauty that I couldn't resist.
From what I understand we didn't even touch the surface of Brooklyn Heights. We will definitely have to go back.
