Rare photo of the Second Presbyterian Church at the corner of Bleecker and Charlotte Streets in downtown Utica.

Second Presbyterian site

Second Presbyterian site

Second Presbyterian Church is thought to have occupied this site on the southeast corner of Bleecker and Charlotte Streets. It would have occupied the empty lot and perhaps some portion of the footprint of the commercial building on the right-hand side of this image.

Utica Centro Hub

The southwest corner of Bleecker at Charlotte Street is now occupied by Utica's Centro Hub transit terminal. The driveway to right of the transit shelter is all that remains of Charlotte Street in this block. Presumably, in the 1830s Charlotte Street was somewhat wider and occupied some space now under the shelter roof.

This view looks farther east on Bleecker Street toward Genesee Street. Left to right, the Centro Hub roof is visible, then Charlotte Street, then the Second Presbyterian site, and finally commercial buildings some of whose footprint nearest the camera may have been part of the Second Presbyterian Church property.
