N J Sketchers at Liberty State Park June 30 



What does New Jersey have that New York doesn't?  ......Great views of the NY skyline!  

The History of Liberty State Park - New Jersey Digest Magazine



Join us for a day of sketching at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. If you have never been there you are in for a treat.  Great views of the NY skyline, up close and personal views of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, open spaces, green spaces, estuaries and bird sanctuaries are just a few of the sites to sketch.  Then there are the NJ Central Railroad Terminal building, boat marinas, wildlife, salt marshes...and on and on. For more information about the park and its services, click here: https://nj.gov/dep/parksandforests/parks/libertystatepark.html


Fun fact question: Is the Statue of Liberty part of NY or NJ?

Answer: NJ....her address is 1 Communipaw Ave, Jersey City.  Once there was an argument between the Mayors of NY and Jersey City.  The NY mayor insisted that the Statue was part of NY, so to prove a point the Jersey City mayor had the electricity to the island shut off since she does reside in NJ!
