Clearly I'm not ready of winter. After a couple of cold months anything above freezing seems like a warm day. It was above freezing but it was tough going when we went sketching on Saturday.

A few doors down the block from the James house we found the brownstone where Edward Hopper had his studio
We needed to find a place to warm up and found a great Tea Shop. We ended up staying a couple of hours, sketching the patrons and each other.

The sun came out for a brief while and tempted us to leave the Tea Shop. We walked crosstown to the street where O'Henry lived. I've walked this block a number of time but never really realized what a gem it is. There's a beautiful courtyard on the side.

We finished at the White Horse Tavern, in the late afternoon. Unfortunately I have no sketches to share. Clearly we need to go back, ... earlier, on a truly cold winter day.
