The Cathedral of St. Patrick

This massive cathedral, situated across from Rockefeller Center on Fifth Avenue is regarded as the largest Catholic cathedral in the United States. With its two soaring 330-foot spires, St. Patrick's Cathedral is also one of the city's most spectacular architectural sights. Construction on the neo-gothic structure had started in 1850 and completed in 1878. Inside, it boasts of numerous altars and stained glass windows, and a giant organ with over 7,300 pipes. Services are held throughout the day, and many New Yorkers stop in for a moment of serenity in their otherwise hectic lives.

John Ballantine House

John Ballantine House was the residence of Jeanette and John Holme Ballantine, owner of a local brewery business. Built around 1885, the brick wall structure is an example of Dutch architecture. Converted into a museum, the house has a dining room, a bed room, a billiard room, a library and a parlor. All the rooms have been restored to represent the era in which they were built. Some other rooms have been made into galleries with artifacts that show the changing lifestyle of the people during the 18th Century. The house is part of the Newark Museum showcasing the decorative arts used in the cultural and social life of the county during the 18th and 19th Centuries.

South Street Seaport

The South Street Seaport is an architectural excerpt from the city's long and eventful history, its cobblestone streets flanked on either side by some of downtown Manhattan's oldest commercial buildings. The Historic District is centered around the point where Fulton Street ends at the East River, an enchanting collection of 19th-century buildings and warehouses that stands in stark contrast to the skyscrapers of the adjacent Financial District. The neighborhood's history as a bustling port resonates in its distinctive, nautical character, lending the restaurants and cafes that cluster here a jovial vibe. A bevy of shops and quaint boutiques also make this a top-notch shopping destination, with the mall at Pier 17 as the epicenter of the South Street Seaport's offer. Sweeping views of the East River and the Brooklyn Bridge await at Pier 15, while antique ships bob at the port by the museum. Also of interest are the Titanic Memorial Lighthouse and the old Fulton Fish Market.

Henry Guest House

The Henry Guest House was built in 1760, and continues to stand even today as a testament to the city's rich cultural and historic heritage. The house has come to be a veritable historic landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Over the years, the house has served as a meeting place, art center and museum. After almost being demolished in 1924, the house was moved to its current location the next year. Remarkably, the structure has retained much of its original appearance. The house currently serves as a community meeting space and is maintained by the New Brunswick Free Public Library.
