Untapped Cities Insiders are invited to join a special behind-the-scenes tour of Old First Reformed Church in Park Slope, Brooklyn, which has just completed Phase One of a 10-year, comprehensive restoration – the first in the history of the almost-130-year-old church. Led by Rev. Dr. Daniel Meeter, Insiders will learn the fascinating history of the congregation, which was founded by early Dutch settlers in the 17th century, and the church structure itself which was built 1891. The Rev. Dr. Daniel Meeter has been pastor of “Old First,” since 2001. He grew up in Brooklyn, as his father was a Reformed pastor in Bedford-Stuyvesant. He took his Ph.D. from Drew University in 1989. He studied liturgy and church architecture at the Rijksuniversiteit te Groningen in the Netherlands.

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS:

  • See the brilliant stained glass windows of the church created by renowned artists and studios like  Otto Heinigke, William Willet, and Tiffany Studios
  • Admire the restoration work throughout the historic structure, which was dedicated in 1891— the sanctuary’s vaulted, coffered ceiling; pews; and altar, as well as the church’s 212-foot limestone spire
  • Get up close to the church’s pipe organ and gain access to balcony
