Hint: Check the Background for Guidance to This Crossroad

New, 27 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!

Two streets converge in NYC in this photo taken in the first half of the 20th century. The buildings remain, although most seem residential now, rather than part of a commercial corridor. And it's an open question as to whether belgian blocks or potholed pavement provide a smoother ride for yesterday and today's automobiles. Have any idea where this is? Drop your guesses in the Comments and let the first correct responder win.
