“Great historical place with a great area for a day's outing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

I visited this place with my family and son. Cherry Blossom was at its fullest and the nature was at its best at this time. Had a great time at this place and enjoyed a lot.

“Come in April for a double-treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2012

If you come to see the Sacred Heart Basilica in April, you'll be in for a double-treat. Fantastically interesting large basilica in the middle of Newark's cherry tree festival. The basilica is quite vast and very impressive, with its large organs and stained glass windows. The cherry trees generally bloom from late March to mid-April - a must see for anyone visiting the basilica, or the city of Newark and its environs.

“Like Being in Europe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2012

The Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart rivals any of the hundreds of cathedrals we have seen throughout Europe. Begun in the late 1800s it was completed in the 1950s. The two rose windows (stained glass) are breathtaking as is the exquisite workmanship both inside the building and out. Call to find out what hours the building is open. 973-484-4600. We happened to be there just before a wedding and, hearing the musicians warm up gave an idea of the incredible acoustics. There are concerts from time to time so go to their website for more information. www.cathedralbasilica.org.

“A sacred respite in the middle of change”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2012

It is hard to believe that such a wonderful place of worship has survived all the violence that Newark has suffered.
