The Step Stone of The Church

Volume One of Joel Munsell's Annals of Albany contains a description of an old stone which marked the location of the First Dutch Church on Broadway near the foot of State Street.  The stone survived until 1850.  The stone - or at least an artistic rendering of it - is the kidney-shaped object near the left side of the "very rude engraving" above (click to enlarge).
