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.
