Heart Roman Catholic Church
New Brunswick, Middlesex County
I have photographed this large red brick church several times—both
before and after the restoration—but I have always had a marked
preference for exterior scaffolding when photographing a church. That
me to anchor the image to a specific date more surely than any other
sign. Yes, I agree, it does interfere with seeing what the church looks
like but sometimes a good real estate shot is not what I
want to put on this website. Sacred Heart was built in 1883 and the
restoration dates to 2001. Patrick Keely was the architect.
