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!
While the urban landscape around this street went up, up, up, the fenced in area to the right remains frozen in time. The photo was taken more than 100 years ago, and today, this westward view is very different. What street does this photo look down and at what intersection is the photographer standing? Knowing the fenced-in area is key, so name that as well.
