Hint: A Former Movie Palace That Lost Its Decorative Flair

New, 16 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 was taken in the early 1900s, around the same time that this theater opened its doors. The building is still operational today, but not as a movie theater. It's not as pretty a place anymore, either?much of the ornamentation, including the decorative awning, has been lost or painted over. Do you know where this building is and what it's used for today?
