  1. It was a great day. This museum is a treasure with its mixture of art and history. I was intrigued by the copper globe that dates from the 1500s and is purportedly the first globe to show a recognizable depiction of North America. The maker used notes from Giovanni de Verrazano. Then around the corner there was a bust of Verrazano, so I sketched this legend and enjoyed doing so. The 4th floor holds the museum's collection of antiques which is a treasure trove for sketching. Thanks for recommending this location, Mark.
