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.

  • it is one of the nicest Catholic diocesan cathedrals that I have ever been to, and I have been to several Catholic diocesan cathedrals here in the US. Massive and absolutely beautiful.

  • One of the bigger churches in the east. Nice windows. If it is cherry blossom time, drive through the park next to the church.

  • Such a big beautiful Church inside and outside
  • Amazing work of Sacred Art and architectural detail. It reminded me of the churches in Europe. Went for Sunday Mass and unfortunately only had a very limited time to explore afterwards. Definitely a place you could spend a few hours. The Stations of the Cross are made with mosaics and the stain glass windows are stunning.
