1434 / Chinese writing / Chinatown / NYC

At Chinatown after going to my favorite restaurant, where what I eat its always a surprise, due to the lack of communication. Rarely I get what I wanted to order and I like that! 

Then, I sketched my first Chinese letters, although I had no idea what they meant…

1432/ Big Band / Greenwich Village // NYC

1418 / United Nations Headquarters / NYC (sold)

Yesterday I had a nice brunch at Greenpoint with some friends that work at the United Nations. After that, I went to Long Island and drew that building. Le Corbu and Niemeyer’s edifice outstands for its proportions and light colors.
