Jane Jacobs turns 100 today! Her ideas about the strength of neighborhoods are relevant to my work today. Now over 850 consecutive daily drawings into my Nick’s Lunchbox Service project, many of those are in historic Greenwich Village, part of what Jacobs fought to save. Thank you Jane!
Also, thank you to everyone on Twitter appreciating the drawing of her building on Hudson Street that was exhibited in my Literary Greenwich Village show earlier this year at the NYPL’s Hudson Park Library, within the neighborhood.

On March 10, 2016 I took over the Instagram feed at the Museum at Eldridge Street. Here’s a record of the day. Also, take a look at the #NicksLunchboxatEldridge hashtag on Instagram.
I’m taking over over the Instagram feed at @museumateldridgestreet all day today, follow along with #NicksLunchboxAtEldridge The Eldridge Street Synagogue was built in 1887 and designed by architects Peter and Francis William Herter. This was the first time in America that Eastern European Jews had built a synagogue from the ground up. By the 1940s though, the main sanctuary gradually fell out of use, and into decay. #NicksLunchboxService #eldridgestreet #synagogue #chinatown #chinatownnyc #herterbrothers #lowereastside #facade #art #architecture #drawing #LES

Literary Greenwich Village
February 1-29, 2016
Hudson Park Library Gallery

Opening Reception: Tuesday, February 2, 5-7pm
Artist Talk: Thursday, February 18, 6-7pm
Literary Greenwich Village, an exhibition by artist Nick Golebiewski, features photographed ink drawings of historic literary sites in Greenwich Village. In his distinctive style of pen-and-ink sketch situated precisely within a photograph’s frame, Golebiewski’s exhibition captures authors’ and poets’ buildings and apartments, all within walking distance of the Hudson Park Library branch of the New York Public Library. More than a dozen pieces are included, picturing sites of note related to such writers as Mark Twain, William Burroughs, E. E. Cummings, Jane Jacobs, Edna St. Vincent Millay, James Baldwin, Emma Lazarus, and Marianne Moore. Literary Greenwich Village distills the literary history within the Hudson Park Library community, reviving memories of a literary lineage tied together by a shared neighborhood over the decades.
The drawings in Literary Greenwich Village are selections from Golebiewski’s project “Nick’s Lunchbox Service.” Comprised of drawings created, photographed and exhibited online daily, “Nick’s Lunchbox Service” entered its third year in 2016. Golebiewski creates a sketch once per day and photographs the sketchbook in front of the subject matter, be it a building or city-scene, as if it were a filter dropped in front of the actual object.
Literary Greenwich Village is on view at the Hudson Park Library of the New York Public Library at 66 Leroy Street, where the exhibition runs February 1-29, 2016.
Library Hours: M 11am-6pm, T 12-7pm, W 11am-6pm, Th 12-7pm, F 10am-5pm, S 10am-5pm, Su Closed

My drawing-a-day project, Nick’s Lunchbox Service, is on the High Line’s Blog: “Photo(s) of the Week: Drawing Inspiration from the High Line”. For a week, I made drawings on the High Line, an elevated out-of-use railroad trestle turned public park on the west side of Manhattan. Read the article.

Today, May 15, 2015, marks the 500th consecutive drawing in my drawing-a-day project, “Nick’s Lunchbox Service” — a milestone. I’ve served up one drawing each and every day, wherever I happened to be be, since January 1, 2014, without missing a single one.
I sketch something I pass and then take a photograph of the sketchbook in front of the subject, as if it were a filter in front of the actual object. Check out the archive page on Tumblr to see them all. Most are in NYC, but the settings also include Buffalo, Columbus, Toronto, Turkey and a mountain top or two.
This sketchbook project lives on the Internet but it occurs in real life. It weaves in descriptions of what’s depicted, architectural history, and a diary of my life, which become much more amazing, complex and rewarding with the birth of my daughter in December.
One day I’d love to make a book out of the Lunchbox drawing project. To help make that happen, please amplify the project by sharing on Instagram, Tumblr or Twitter whenever you notice an installment you particularly like. Thanks to all who already do.

Did you know that in 2014 I made a drawing each and every day? Check out my Nick’s Lunchbox Service project, and often as it continues into 2015.
The drawings are all made onsite, generally outdoors, photographed on site to blend in with the surroundings, and mostly focused on NYC streets and architecture, but occurred wherever I happened to be–with whatever time frame. Manhattan and Brooklyn are represented most frequently , but the project follows my travels to Buffalo and Columbus, and even to Toronto and to Turkey.
In addition to the drawings, text went with it. Sometimes researched, sometimes a momentary impression.
In the feedback I received, there were two main threads of a similar theme. One taking inspiration from the fact that “it doesn’t have to be perfect”. The other appreciating that a drawing is made every day I matter if I’m “too busy”. One post received over 20,000 notes in Tumblr, go figure.
In 2015 I’m moving the “home” of the project from Tumblr to Instagram. I’m announcing you can commission a “lunchbox” drawing and photograph. Also, I’d love to make a book of this project — stay tuned.
And if you were following along all year, thank you!
