Welcome to Cornerspotter, Curbed's game in which you try to identify the location and/or identity of a particular building or streetscape in a historic photograph. Impress us and your fellow Curbed readers with your uncanny insight into New York City and its past!
This photo was taken more than eight decades years ago, and the building still looks the same today, although its use has changed more than once. A major clue as to the building's original purpose hangs over the doorway, which still has the decorative metal work. Do you know where this is and what the building is today? Drop your answers in the comments, and let the first correct guess win!
