The First Reformed Church is a historic Reformed church in the Jamaica section of the New York City borough of Queens. The church was built in 1859. The church has an early romanesque structure that was designed by Sidney J. Young and built by Anders Peterson.[2]

The asymmetrical towers, round-arched openings, and corbel tables are examples of an architectural style known as Rundbogenstil.[3]

The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[4]
