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!
Poverty-stricken and falling apart, this street was on its way to non-existence when this photo was taken in the first half of the 20th century. The wood-framed houses were demolished and the street was de-mapped to make way for new developments and a growing city. What was this street called, where was it located, and what replaced it? Bonus points for naming the photographer.
