This drawing I did at the end of Broad St over the weekend. The street hits a horizontal of traffic from both cars on South St. and those entering the South St. Viaduct, bikes and pedestrians, and even helicopters flying in over the East River.
This drawing I did on Broad St around 7 o'clock at night. I thought this would be a heavy commute time for people, but think I hit it too late. The street has a strong slope downwards to the river and has a ceiling of lighted windows from buildings. Out to the East River is the only real opening to the sky and is where people disappear into and where cars appear out of.
