Weekday Urban Sketchers at Hamilton Grange and City College
Alexander Hamilton built a summer home in upper Manhattan that is still there today. Named The Grange after his grandfathers estate in Scotland, he lived there for only 2 years before being killed in a duel by Aaron Burr. This piece of American history is now located in St. Nicholas Park in Harlem. Owned by the National Parks Service it is open to the public for tours.We will be sketching the building from the park. Participants are welcome to go to the museum or take a tour on their own.
Sitting on a bluff above The Grange are the gothic buildings of City College's uptown campus. Our afternoon will be spent trying to capture the ornamentation of these buildings.
