Only few people are aware of the fact that Newark appears to be the biggest city in New Jersey. Newark has a long history and can be proud of a great number of historical sites and various cultural attractions.
The city has one of the largest and the most magnificent cathedrals in the U.S.-Newark's Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart. The foundation started in 1899 and lasted till 1954, so we can say that is was built for quite a short period of time, taking into account that it's a Gothic cathedral . Olmsted's park, where the cathedral is situated, is about four miles long with more than 2000 cherry trees.
