Hint: Elevated Trains No Longer Cross This Busy Street

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!

Taken in the 1920s, this photo shows one of New York's major thoroughfares at a time when it was crossed by elevated subway tracks. The tracks were demolished more than 70 years ago, and today, the ever-changing road is lined with much, much taller buildings. Which subway line is that and what road is it crossing?
