On Sunday, November 16, the NYC Urban Sketchers met downtown on Spring Street at the Fire Museum. No, no ,no. We didn't spend the day toasting marshmallows. Hmm. Not a bad idea.
This museum is filled with everything used to fight fires. I was, as per usual, overwhelmed with all the detail on all the magnificent very old fire engines and equipment and, after spending some time exploring the first floor with my mouth agape - the main water line was a log with the center bored out!! back in the old times - I went up to the second floor.
This floor was also chockablock with more old ornate fire engines, equipment, portraits, doodads on every surface. I rested my eyes on some old illustrations and eased my way into sketching.
