The New Utrecht Reformed Church is located on 18th Avenue between 83rd and 84th Streets. It has been a community home for organizations and church members from several denominations. The church, its parish house, cemetery and grounds are in care of the Reformed Church in America (RCA). The pastor is the Reverend Terry Troia, Executive Director of Project Hospitality on Staten Island, a service for community members who are hungry, homeless or otherwise in need. The church grounds are easily identifiable from miles around by the 106' tall Liberty Pole on its front lawn, the sixth in succession since the first was raised in 1783 as the British departed the shores of what was to become the United States of America.
The preservation of this magnificent treasure and historic community resource calls for significant financial assistance. The Friends of Historic New Utrecht (FHNU) is currently accepting charitable contributions to our Restoration Fund.
