We’re All In on NYC’s comeback.

Reformed Protestant Dutch Church

in Port Richmond.  

Experience 350 years of History in 1.3 acres.

 

 

Our Congregation, continuous since 1656, played a pivotal role in the American Revolution,

especially Joshua Mersereau, cited by the CIA as a founder of American Intelligence. 

Our member, Cornelius Vanderbilt, created an unsurpassed fortune while shaping our modern world.
