Visiting New York City

In July we had the opportunity to spend several days in New York City as I have written about before. We visited the Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden and I taught a Watercolor Journaling Workshop at the New York Open Center. Here's a link to the blog page (click here).

We stayed one night at my brother's apartment in the city with a great view of Long Island City and for 3 nights we stayed in Greenwich Village in a guest house of a brownstone there and loved exploring that area. New York is always inspiring and exciting and we always enjoy our time spent there. Without going into too much detail, here are some of the photos we took.  Enjoy!
