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.
