Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church
Newark, Essex County
The Fifth Avenue Presbyterian church was built in 1899 on a prominent
corner (Park Avenue and Roseville). It has Romanesque Revival forms,
but the detail is largely Renaissance, particularly in the treatment
of the top of the tower. The two sides of the building that face the
street are faced with light gray granite, while the read is red brick,
but with some decorative granite around the windows.
The church is occupied by the Iglesia
de Dios Pentecostal Sinai congregation.
