Last Saturday the NYC Urban Sketchers got special permission to sketch at Hearst Tower. It is an ultra modern tower built on top of an existing building that was commissioned by William Randolph Hearst. We were allowed in the lobby levels which had wonderful views of the neighborhood peeking out between the modern beams that grace the structure.
This is a view through the beams to the outside buildings...with one of our sketchers in the foreground.
From one of the balconies in the lobby there was a great view of a brownstone down on the street.
I had a little time left so I did a quick sketch of the interior beams and hanging tapestries.
