Hint: Once a Civic Center, Now a Fast Food Restaurant

New, 5 comments

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!

Built in the latter half of the 19th century, this elegant building stood for less than 75 years. It served a civic purpose throughout its whole existence, but today the location is occupied by something much less important: a fast food restaurant. Do you know where this building was and what it used to be? Drop your guesses in the comments and the first correct answer wins.
