Just doing it on the R train to Union Street.
New York City Skyline
Last week I made my first trip ever to New York City for a wedding. I left my big sketchbook at home, so I scrawled this impression of Manhattan in my pocket cahier.
Hot muggy morning , hit the prospect ave r station after dropping car off again at the mechanic. The humidity did wonders for some people on the platforms style.
My solid subject for the rest of that ride fading between levels of consciousness, wood paneling makes for evening sleepiness. R train to Union Street, 6-10-10.
Man with Turban on the F with a Little Kramer Sneaking In (Wednesday, 6-9-10)
He was reminiscent of a heavy set Conan O’Brien although a bit paler in the hair. His big brown and white jacket with the red stripe seemed to go on forever. I liked it though, it was fun- like color by numbers on the R back to BK.
Stocky older dude with streaked blacked silver and all slicked back and looking lie some sorta wiseguy. ‘Cept he was reading AM New York or 1 of those free papers, if he was connected i’d a figured a daily news, or maybe a post….
One empty seat on the R train.
