Sixth Precinct

This was a great little structure located in the parking lot of the Americana Manhasset Mall in Manhasset, New York. I assume it was for the local police department that patrols the mall.

Manhasset Congregation Church

The Congregational Church of Manhasset, has a history that dates back to its organization in the fall of 1939. Groundbreaking ceremonies for this structure were held in May, 1948, and the cornerstone was laid on October 24.  Dedication of the building followed on June 12 of 1949. I was drawn to this building by the interesting and modern Bell Tower. I sketched this from the coolness of my car in between meetings on a very hot day. Pilot Falcon fountain pen with Noodler’s Bulletproof black ink and Holbein watercolors in a Stillman and Birn Beta sketchbook.

North Easton Train Station

An elevation study of the old train station in North Easton, Massachusetts. The North Easton Railroad Station, is a historic railroad station designed by noted American architect. H. Richardson. It is a relatively small station, a single story in height with Richardson’s characteristic heavy masonry and outsized roof. Its long axis runs north-south with the tracks, now disused, along its west side. The building is laid out symmetrically within, with a large passenger room at each end (one for women, the other for men). The station’s facade is constructed of rough-faced, random ashlar of gray granite with a brownstone belt course and trim. Two large, semicircular arches punctuate each of the long facades, inset with windows and doorways, and ornamented with carvings of a beast’s snarling head; a further semicircular arch projects to form the east facade’s porte-cochere. Eaves project deeply over all sides, supported by plain wooden brackets. This drawing was done from the warmth of the car during a snow storm. Faber-Castell Pitt pens with Pelikan watercolors and Lukas Gouache.
