Hint: Robert Moses Drastically Changed This Quiet Street

New, 22 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!

Like so many parts of New York, the quiet street shown in the photo above was completely altered by master builder Robert Moses. The street wasn't wiped off the map, but today it's dominated by a road that can handle a lot more traffic. The photo was taken nearly 20 years before Moses made his mark. What is the intersection from which this photo was taken? What exists here today?
