Bushwick Avenue Church Steeple Repaired

When we passed by the Reformed Church of South Bushwick at 855 Bushwick Avenue New Year’s Day, the scaffolding that covered the steeple for at least a year or more was down. What’s more, we were thrilled to see the steeple has been repaired, although there is still a small hole in the side near the top. The Greek Revival church was built in 1853. For a closeup of the steeple and a “before” shot, click through to the jump.
