V. Dollar Building
Here's another drawing from my trip to Put In Bay last week. It's a building near downtown that's certainly over 100 years old and housed the original Put In Bay post office and countless other businesses over the years. Javan said that when he was a kid it was a hardware store, but now it features a bar called "The Fishbowl" in one half of the ground floor and in the other half there is a restaurant called "Mossback's". The "V. Dollar" above the front door is the name of the dude who built it. I forget his first name but he was the first Mayor of Put In Bay.
That's all the history I have.
When I was working on this drawing a guy came up and started chatting with me. It caught me off guard as people in New York don't really pay too much attention so I decided that I need to be more prepared to talk to folks when I'm drawing.
