Governor George E. Pataki awarded New Utrecht Reformed Church a $300,000 grant for exterior renovation work, the Governor’s office announced Friday, May 14th.

State Senator Martin Golden was pleased with the grant. "The New Utrecht Reformed Church has been part of the community since 1827 (sic) and is the last vestigate of 17th-18th Century community life left in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. As the Church faces dire need for renovations and repairs, in order to preserve the historical importance, this funding could not have come at a more crucial time. I applaud Governor Pataki and his administration for recognizing this most important need. The future of this Church was in jeopardy but the State’s grant will ensure that this facility continues to inspire a community. Our pleas to save this site have been heard."

The story about the grant airs on NY1 on Monday, May 17.

In order to receive the grant the church must spend a matching amount of $300,000. You can help by donating to the New Utrecht Reformed Church Restoration Fund (see above).


The New Utrecht Reformed Church is a historic landmark and listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The church, established in 1677 and a member of the Reformed Church in America, is the fourth oldest church in Brooklyn. The Liberty Pole, first installed in 1783, is the sixth pole erected at the site of the present church and is the only remaining liberty pole in the original thirteen colonies.
