  • The First Presbyterian Church of Far Rockaway, formerly known as the Russell Sage Memorial Church, is a historic Presbyterian church located in the Far Rockaway neighborhood of Queens, New York. It was commissioned by Olivia Slocum Sage as a memorial to her late husband, Russell Sage, as they used to summer in the area. She also commissioned a large, memorial stained glass window of a landscape, designed by Tiffany Studio. Designed by the noted architect Ralph Adams Cram, the church was built between 1908 and 1910 and is a Neo-Gothic-style building laid out in a traditional cruciform plan. It is constructed of brick with concrete trim and a steeply sloping slate covered roof. Connected to the church are a parish hall and manse. The surrounding landscape, designed by the Olmsted Brothers, is a contributing element to is designation of historic significance. The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.
