Drawing on location at 72nd and Broadway [Formerly “Needle Park”]

Location drawings from an evening last summer with Elizabeth Baddeley and the Draw Club, recent graduates of School of Visual Arts Illustration MFA program, who draw the passing scene each week at a different location.  We met that evening at 72nd and Broadway.  I was informed that this little island of a park was known by local drug users and dealers in the 1970’s as “needle park“.
