Survey number HABS NJ-1235
Building/structure dates: 1912 initial construction
Significance: The School Street-Monroe Street Neighborhood is centered on the School Street Apartments and St. Joseph's Polish Church and School. The School Street Apartments are a group of eleven matching brick apartment houses built ca. 1912 on a block created expressly for their development. They represent a unique large-scale plan to meet the housing needs of a wave of immigrant workers who arrived in Passaic between 1890 and 1920, seeking jobs in local textile plants, and have been determined eligible for National Register listing. St. Joseph's Polish Church is a brick Roman Catholic church built in 1901 in a Baroque Classical style. The associated school is a three-story brick building built to the east of the church in 1910. St. Joseph's was the first parish organized in Passaic for the city's Polish-speaking immigrant population, which compromised one of the largest segments of the workforce at the city's textile mills. The church and school are associated with the history of Passaic's textile industry and Polish community and have been determined eligible for National Register listing. The neighborhood surrounding the Apartments, Church, and School has been inventoried and determined to contain no other individual resources or any groups that are eligible for National Register listing. However, containing a factory complex and commercial and residential buildings from the late 19th and early 20th century, the surrounding neighborhood is the context out of which the Register-eligible resources arose.
