When I began to paint the Delmonico Restaurant and its surrounding area, the building on the right hand corner of the canvas was still there. It balanced my composition perfectly, and luckily remained until I finished the painting. Soon afterwards it was torn down.

This was a wonderful spot in which to work. There was little heavy traffic, the neighborhood seemed to be filled with history buffs who loved this building, and when I needed to see further into the distance than what my street view allowed, I was offered viewing space from some of the top floors of the surrounding buildings.

I kept my painting supplies at Delmonico and at India House ( which was only a block away) and it was never as windy as the nearby areas of my other paintings had been
