Bill Batson & The Nyack Sketch Log

Bill Batson gives a resonating voice to the lives, the history and the architecture that make our Nyack community so extraordinary. Bill’s Nyack Sketch Log weaves the disparate threads of past and present lives into our shared story of Nyack, which will unite us all for generations to come. There is something enchanting about reading the secret histories that are tucked away in plain sight. Over a century of love, quarrels, art, dreams, fame and revolution linger behind the picturesque corbels and shutters of our riverfront town; and Bill Batson reveals these secret histories to us, one fascinating,vividly illustrated tale at a time. Thank you, Bill, for giving such a profound gift of story-telling to your community, and for preserving for posterity what may have otherwise been lost.
