Completed in 1888 this church was dedicated to the wonder-working saint in a more prosperous part of the area, where Italian families often moved when they had done well on the Lower East Side. According to Harper's Monthly, the parish of St. Anthony was "attended by a superior class of Italians, all apparently prosperous and at peace with their environment - in a word, by notherners."
This distinction between northern and southern Italians lay in the fact that very few skilled workers and still fewer professionals chose to emigrate. The mass of immigrants were poorly educated peasants, primarily from the agricultural regions of the south. Like the educated German Jews, educated Italians were embarrassed to be associated with their peasant compatriots.
