The Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart, the fifth-largest cathedral in North America, is the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark. It is located at 89 Ridge Street in the Lower Broadway neighborhood of Newark, New Jersey. Construction began in 1899 and was finished in 1954. The original design called for an English-Irish Gothic Revival church, but plans were later modified in favor of a French Gothic Revival style.

  • The architecture is absolutely stunning, the artwork and the craftsmanship is so very gorgeous inside. A must visit if you are anywhere nearby Jersey city. Looks like this place is super famous for the photo shoots. Roadside parking is available and I think they’ve got additional parking lots nearby. It’s a must visit, add this amazing place to your itinerary if you’re visiting Jersey city. Added some of my captures from this place below……
  • I really want to share my experience. I went to this Basilica on a Sunday morning. After the mass, with all my friends we received the most amazing tour around the Basilica with a great man, David. I don't know anybody who knows more saints names and history about them than David. He explained each statute, every single detail inside the Basilica structure, inside and outside. He was awesome and did a wonderful job. I thank David for taking his time and giving us such an amazing tour.
