Newark may be used as a landing place for New York City but it offers its own reasons to stay and visit. Visitors can enjoy art galleries, performing arts, and museums with ease. Walk along the beautiful waterfront and take in the breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline. Find local restaurants and pubs with live music. Be sure to visit Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart, the French Gothic Cathedral covers 45,000 square feet and is an architectural marvel. The Newark Penn station makes it easy to travel around town or to NYC.
