The New Utrecht Reformed Church will be holding its fall Thrift Sale, this Saturday, October 19, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the parish house, next to the historic sanctuary on 18th Avenue between 83rd Street and 84th Street.
In keeping with its tradition of twice annually opening its doors to savvy shoppers, the large selection with great prices includes clothing, linens, shoes, books, toys, handbags, jewelry, electronic items, small household appliances and house ware.
Proceeds benefit restoration of the sanctuary structure, which dates from 1828. The New Utrecht Church was founded in 1677.
Parking is available in the church lot with bus and subway lines nearby. The B8 stops in front of the church; the B1 two blocks away on 86th Street. The church is one block away from the 18th Avenue subway station’s D line.
More information on the history of the church and the early history of Brooklyn is available from the Friends of Historic New Utrecht at (718) 256-7173 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
