Cornerspotted: The High Bridge Library Addition In 1933

Once again, Cornerspotter expert Ferryboi guessed the correct location of this week's photo. The hill pointed him towards the Bronx, and the reading room-like windows made him think it was a library, which lead him to determine that it is the High Bridge Library at 168th Street and Woodycrest Avenue. It's one of the oldest libraries in the city, and the photo shows it after a 1933 renovation that expanded the original building. Today, the structure is a modern brick and glass edifice that was created during a three-year long makeover that started in 2007.
