SATURDAY: Sketch the Myrtle Promenade

This Saturday we’ll explore downtown Brooklyn.  We’ll start the day at the Brooklyn MetroTech area.  Possibly New York’s answer to Silicon Valley (…we’ll see).

We’ll meet at the Myrtle Promenade which is in the heart of the heart of the MetroTech complex in an area called “The Commons".

In the afternoon we’ll enjoy sketching two blocks away in Brooklyn’s Civic Center - the Columbus Park area that includes the the modern Brutalist style Brooklyn Supreme Court and classic old Greek Revival style Borough Hall building.


Where:   We’ll meet at the corner of Jay Street and the Myrtle Promenade in the center of the MetroTech area.  See the map below for details.

When:  Starting time is 10 AM, but if sleep is more precious than sketching time - come when you can, … we’ll be there.  Bring my cell phone below if you can't spot us.

How:  By Subway
-  Jay Street - MetroTech Station, A,C R or F train
-  Borough Hall, 2,3,4 or 5 train
See map for easy walk.

Lunch:   12:30 Break for lunch.  Bring your own or take a short walk to Forno Rosso:  327 Gold St for pizza.

Afternoon:  1:30 - we’ll be sketching the Civic Center area and the court buildings.

Show and Tell:  3:00 PM for the Social part of Urban Sketching.  It's a short walk to the Brooklyn Brewhouse:  229 Duffield St. b/t Willoughby St & Fulton St where we will share drawings, good stories and and a snack or refreshments if you're so inclined.
