Weekday Urban Sketchers at Columbus Circle
On the traditional Columbus Day, October 12th, join us for an exploration of the part of the city named for this explorer: Columbus Circle. Included in the original plans for Central Park, dates back to a time when this area was nothing but farms, it is now considered the geographic center of NYC. The area will offer us lots of opportunities to sketch some of NYC's icons: the stature of Columbus, the southwest entrance to Central Park, #2 Columbus Circle, the "either-love-it-or-hate-it" building that now houses the Museum of Art and Design and the nexus of roadways that meet at the circle.
