The Elmendorf Reformed Church at 171 East 121st Street between Sylvan Court and Third Avenue in the Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City was founded as a parish house and Sunday school for the First Collegiate Church of Harlem, which had its beginnings in 1660 as the Harlem Reformed Dutch Church. Sanctuaries were built in 1665-67, 1686-87, 1825 and 1897, at various locations in the area. In 1893-94 a Neoclassical parish house was built, designed by Joseph Ireland, and c.1910 the church at the time was torn down, and the parish house was rebuilt as the Elmendorf Chapel, which now stands as the Elmendorf Reformed Church, the oldest congregation in Harlem.
