Feb. 14: Lincoln presentation at the Parish House


Abraham Lincoln will visit Bensonhurst on February 14. Lincoln will be portrayed by Mr. Robert Costello in a performance Thursday evening, February 14, 2019, at 7:30 pm before an audience in the Parish House of the New Utrecht Reformed Church, 18th Avenue and 84th Street.

The event, sponsored by the Friends of Historic New Utrecht, is free to the public.

Robert Costello has appeared as Lincoln for a number of years before adult and student audiences. He is a student of Lincoln and Civil War history and served on the New Jersey 150th Civil War Anniversary Committee. He is a member of the New Jersey Civil War Heritage Association and a number of other historical organizations. Mr. Costello is the “resident Lincoln” at the Lehigh Valley Heritage Museum in Allentown, Pa. and has also appeared as Lincoln at several historical events in Gettysburg Pa.

Earlier on February 14, Mr. Lincoln is scheduled to meet an audience of local elementary school students in a morning program at New Utrecht High School also sponsored by the Friends organization.
