On Saturday my friend, Susan and I were meeting the NYC Urban Sketchers, but not until 1. Since it is such a long trip to Manhattan from out here on Long Island, we almost always go in so we are in the city by 9am. We took the subway from Penn Station to Grand Central Terminal to sketch there.
My first sketch was done in the main concourse where the famous clock is located. I've sketched from this same spot several times. It is a good spot to sit on the floor against the wall and not get into anyone's way. There is always a flurry of active people passing by since the clock is a meeting place for so many people. lol
Next we headed downstairs to the food court. We sat facing the Irving Farm Coffee Roasters, which also had a good amount of business.
By the time we finished sketching there it was time to take the subway to our main sketching location. Watch for those sketches tomorrow.
