Our first sketch location was on the waterfront overlooking the NY harbour. 30 degrees to the left was the Statue of Liberty, straight ahead was Ellis Island, 30 degrees to the right was the Freedom Tower, and Castle Williams. Some of the greatest monuments ever , to protect the freedom and liberties of of the people of this country! What a view! What an island. So much to explore and we didn't even tap it all.

My sketch of the Freedom Tower, and to the very right of it is Castle Williams. Built in 1807, it ultimately housed Confederate prisoners during the Civil War.
Ellis Island. My grandfather came through here around 1913.
The Bouffe Balle , translated in English to "food balls" because the ball gets tossed into the mouth. The only figures I was able to recognize were Charlis Chaplin and Josephine Baker.
