The Old Quaker Meeting House is a historic Quaker house of worship located at 137-16 Northern Boulevard, in Flushing, Queens, New York. It is part of Flushing Monthly Meeting.

The site, built in 1694, is the oldest house of worship in New York City, one of the three oldest continuously active sites of religious activity in North America, and the second oldest Quaker meeting house in the nation. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1967.[2][3]

Today, it still serves as a Quaker Meeting, with meetings for worship taking place every Sunday.
