240 Centre Street, SOHO, NYC

3-8-17 sketchbook

I've recently become more interested in drawing from life. Too early for an appointment in SOHO and with unseasonably warm temperatures, I found a great bench to sit on overlooking Lafayette and Broome street with a view of 240 Centre Street: the former Police HQ where I quickly sketched this page. Built from 1905-1909, it was used by New York's Finest until 1978. In 1988 it was converted to luxury condominiums because, of course it was.
