Hint: When the Trains Were Elevated and Louder Than Horns

New, 14 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!

It seems totally nuts to see these elevated lines completely crowd the streetscape of New York, until you're traveling someplace like along Broadway in Brooklyn today, in which case it seems totally natural. The near-total submersion of its subway lines may be one of the biggest differentiators between Manhattan and the other boroughs. Have any idea where this is? Drop your guesses in the Comments and let the first correct responder win.
