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 quiet-looking lane in New York hasn't changed much, except for the most prominent building in this photograph itself, which did not survive into the 21st Century. Most of its neighbors did, however, lending the street a distinct 19th century atmosphere that fits its physical location. Have any idea where this is? Drop your guesses in the Comments and let the first correct responder win.
