The Old First Reformed Church in Park Slope, Brooklyn is home to one of the oldest congregations in New York City. Founded by early Dutch settlers in the 17th century, the congregation moved into this church after it was built in 1891. The 130-year-old church has just completed Phase One of a 10-year, comprehensive restoration – the first in its history – and you can go inside to see the stunning work. On June 16th, join Untapped Cities Insiders for a special behind-the-scenes tour led by the church’s pastor Rev. Dr. Daniel Meeter. Insider you will learn the fascinating history of the congregation and see how the church’s stained glass windows, custom pews, and other decorative Gothic features have been, and will continue to be, restored.
