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!
When this photo was taken, this intersection was a busy commercial area, and it still is today. The buildings on the corner have been replaced by one much larger and much shinier, but the building across the street, seen on the right edge of this image, still stands. The cars in the image give a clue as to when exactly this photo was taken in the early half of the 20th century. Can you name the intersection? Drop your guesses in the comments!
