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 arched brick building was built more than a century ago as a stable and carriage house for a wealthy New Yorker. It was praised for its design when it was built, as it had carved woodwork, burnished wrought iron details, and the stalls were kept "clean and trim." The carriage house could fit "every style of pleasure vehicle that a gentleman's fancy can picture," and the building's second use was solely for cars. Today, only a portion of the building remains. Do you know where it is or who it was originally built for?
