The Brick Presbyterian Church is a large congregation at Park Avenue and 91st Street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan in New York City. A member of the Presbyterian Church, it is known for its Day School and music programs. It was founded as an offshoot of First Presbyterian Church. Its first building, in Lower Manhattan, opened in 1768. The Park Avenue location opened April 14, 1940.
The first church building was constructed on the corner of Beekman and Nassau Streets. It opened doors on New Year's Day in 1768. During the American Revolutionary War, the British used the church to house prisoners of war. When the congregation moved uptown, the New-York Daily Times used the site for its new headquarters, a dedicated five-story building.
