Welcome to Cornerspotter, Curbed's new 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!
Look at these poor moppets, back at the leading edge of the Roaring '20s (1922) in New York, when being a living breathing scalie for a photographer was the best work some people could get. This neighborhood has certainly had its ups and downs in the interim since this photo was taken. Do you know where this is and what the photographer is looking at? Drop your guesses in the Comments and let the first correct responder win.
