Avenue Reformed Church
Jersey City, Hudson County
of this old Reformed church contains a number of interesting elements,
mostly Romanesque in tradition. The congregation was organized in
1871 and this building was erected in 1893-94. It sits on Bowers,
just a block off Central Avenue and is almost unchanged from
its appearance in a 1910 postcard except that it is missing the steeply
peaked roof on the tower.
