Hearst Tower with NYC Urban Sketchers

March 5, 2018

A few weeks ago, NYC Urban Sketchers took a (now annual) trip to Hearst Tower. One of our number works there and is able to get us exclusive access to the gorgeous and usually private atrium. The Hearst Building was originally erected in 1928 at just six stories tall. It was originally meant to act as the base of a much taller building, but when the stock market crashed all bets were off. It took nearly eighty years, but it was finally expanded into an iconic skyscraper that opened in 2006. Despite its modern addition, the exterior of the original six stories was preserved, offering a unique blend of old and new. Here's my sketch of the interior!
