066: SBP Greetings From New York!

Last week, I sent off my Sketchbook Project 2014 to the Brooklyn Art Library. With all the time that goes into it, sending my sketchbooks off is always a bitter sweet moment... My theme is "Greetings From...", which I thought was perfect as I chose to document my New York trip....

From December 30th to January 5th, I traveled to New York!!! I have never seen so much in such a short period of time, it was such a unique and rich experience. I will never forget it!!!
Instead of posting all of my sketchbook pages in one post, I decided to split it up as there is too much to talk about!

Bryant Park: Our first night in New York, we dashed to Bryant Park where they have an ice rink with a beautiful ornamented tree (I liked this much more than Rockefeller's tree which was coned off, while at Bryant we were able to go up and touch the tree) and holiday shops. We grabbed apple cider at Big Apple Cider- which was perfect for standing in line in the cold! It even came with a cinnamon stick! Skating under the Christmas tree and New York lights was a very magical experience and a perfect beginning to our NY adventure!
This page documents some of the places we visited...
Ghost Buster Fire Station: Who you gonna call?! Ghost Busters! and now I know where their fire house is! :P
Empire State Building: Don't forget to look up at night! They change the colors of the lights!
Washington Square: One of my favorite parks in NY. We were greeted by a very friendly squirrel, passed by chess tables, and ran into pigeon man. It must be even more beautiful during the warmer weather.
Rockefeller (Top of the Rock): Best view of NY!

That's all for now :) Until next time!
