St. John the Baptist Cathedral
Paterson, Passaic County

A cathedral is a substantial building, the seat of a bishop, and certainly St. John's is no exception. The architect was Patrick Keely, who designed several of the most interesting Catholic churches in the state—indeed, Keeley was the principal architect for the Catholic church on the East Coast for a decade or two.
