How late was this wedding gift? I think the wedding about three years ago, but I did not have photos to draw from until this year, thanks to nyc correspondent Hayliebird. I actually walked this very block and tried to take photos one year ago, but my camera battery gave out. (It's curious how the resulting colors of this image are the same as the google map that I posted to mark the street in last year's post...)
Are you curious about the first draft? I was asked to draw the foyer of the building and use it somehow in the composition. I tried...but the "skyline" of Manhattan as backdrop is not something Brooklyners are proud of.
