thumbnail for New Utrecht Reformed ChurchThe New Utrecht Church is located in the #BathBeach section of Brooklyn, right off of 18th Ave, and right near the D train. The flagpole that stands in front of the church, better known as the Liberty Pole, is the oldest in the country, erected in 1783 at the end of the Revolutionary War. The pole has changed a few times since then, but the eagle and weathervane on the top remains the same.
