Hint: A Public Building Years Before Its Extreme Makeover

New, 6 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!

For more than 100 years, the same institution has occupied this corner lot. The building shown here was the result of an expansion in the first half of the 20th century, but today the structure looks completely different. After years of neglect, it saw a major renovation in the last decade. What is this place and where is it located?
