Bethany Memorial Reformed Church, NYC

March 22, 2017

Bethany Memorial Reformed Church is one of several related congregations in the Dutch Reformed tradition. It was built about 1910 on the east side of Manhattan at First Avenue and Sixth-seventh Street. The architects were Nelson & Van Wagenen (who sounds exceptionally Dutch himself). Bethany is also an exceptional example of an institutional church, equipped with the “standard” elements of auditorium and Sunday school, in this case fully Akron. But the facility included a wide range of spaces for the larger social and educational needs of the community. Detailed plans were published in Richard Franz Bach’s series on church architecture in The Architectural Record.
