Serving up a drawing once each day, wherever I happen to be. (NYC)
by Nick Golebiewski
Lunchtime drawing: Traffic light with one way sign at Fifth Avenue and East 90th Street, with a trash can beneath.
Later than lunchtime drawing: The James B. Duke House at 1 East 78th Street, completed in 1912 and funded by a tobacco fortune, is now the classical home of NYU’s Institute of Fine Arts. Apparently architect Horace Trumbauer essentially reproduced the Hotel Lobottiere in Bordeaux, France in his design.
By the way, if you’re in NYC stop by my open studio during the Dumbo Arts Festival on Sept 27+28 at 10 Jay Street #303.
Lunchtime drawing: “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”, inscribed on the facade of the James A. Farley Post Office on 8th Ave between 31st and 33rd Streets in NYC.
Lunchtime drawing: The rain’s let up at the five way intersection of St. Nicholas Ave., Troutman St. And Scott Ave. in Bushwick.
Later than lunchtime drawing: On the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art with golden light looking at Fifth Avenue buildings with a view of Central Park.
September 11 drawing: World Trade Center site in downtown Manhattan, with FDNY bagpipers marching by, 2014.
Lunchtime drawing: Looking up East 93rd Street in Carnegie Hill, NYC.
Later than lunchtime drawing: The awning above the entrance to 820 Fifth Avenue, with a taxi in front.
Earlier than lunchtime drawing: West New York, New Jersey, across the Hudson River on my bike ride uptown.
Later than lunchtime drawing: The quite ornate facade, complete with two marble figures on either side of the entrance, on East 82nd Street of the Benjamin N. and Sarah Duke House. This Beaux Arts building is officially located at 1009 Fifth Avenue, was completed in 1901, and is perhaps the last remaining private mansion on Fifth Avenue.
