Hint: A Men's Clothing Store on a Busy Retail Corridor

New, 17 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!

This photo, taken in the early part of the 20th century, shows a discount men's clothing store along an outer borough street that's still a popular retail corridor today. The business was one of the pioneer chain clothing stores, with several locations throughout the city. You can see the elevated train tracks in the image, which is a good indicator as to which street this is since a train line still runs along the same path, but below the street. Do you know what the name of this store was and where it was located?
