Monitor Roof, Paterson

Quiet at work last night and I had a chance to do a sketch: some old buildings in Paterson. I used to work as a real estate appraiser so I learned all the different types of roofs. You don’t see many of these nowadays.

I just found out my DNA: 90% Ashkenazi Jewish and 10% Sephardic North African Jewish. That 10% surprised me. Maybe that’s why I like the Ladino songs so much.

Beautiful day and the weekend is supposed to be great. Happy Father’s Day!

    I remember when I worked at the bank as a small business lender, I visited all kinds of buildings that my customers were housed in, and in Philadelphia there were many varieties, brand new stuff and then things built 150 years ago. I particularly liked visiting factories with the giant clerestory roofs. Your drawing made me think back to those days. Very evocative and true to life. Thank you.
