  • Beautiful architecture. Nice interiors and ambience. It has a large pipe organ. Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart is the seat of the Archdiocese of Newark. Cathedral Basilica holds concerts open to the public throughout the year. Good parking space. I'm into photography and happened to go today to this place with my gear. A wedding was taking place and once everybody left I asked permission for a few pics and it was granted. I had a fest with my camera given that this place cathedral is majestic and beautiful.
