The Marble Collegiate Church, founded in 1628, is one of the oldest continuous Protestant congregations in North America. The congregation, which is part of two denominations in the Reformed tradition—the United Church of Christ and the Reformed Church in America—is now located at 272 Fifth Avenue at the corner of West 29th Street in the NoMad neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. It was built in 1851–54 and was designed by Samuel A. Warner in Romanesque Revival style with Gothic trim. The facade is covered in Tuckahoe marble, for which the church, originally called the Fifth Avenue Church, was renamed in 1906.For Marble Collegiate Church and beyond, use our New York City online trip builder to get the most from your New York City vacation.
The building was designated a New York City landmark in 1967, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

Marble Collegiate Church Reviews
Nice church on Fifth Avenue and 29th Street. Impressive size and bell tower with a functional clock. more »
The blue/teal and white ribbons tied to each pole on the iron fence caught my attention. I crossed over to see what they were for...so moving to read the ribbons were for Suicide Prevention/Awareness.... more »
Lovely and accommodating people. A warm and welcoming church. Great for young children to attend as they have services for youth.
An authentic, warm, and welcoming community of people nestled in NYC. Positive and relevant messages along with dynamic, diverse and delightful music of the highest quality accentuate each gathering. This cross generational, international, and cross-cultural community presents something for everyone who is seeking a strong spiritual community to which to belong. Recommend visiting Sunday mornings or Wednesday evening at 6.15 pm.
