Welcome back 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 two-story building with an interesting shape used to be home to a lot of separate businesses, which gave this kind of building its distinct nicknamenot architecturally speaking. Perhaps despite its original owners intentions the building at least appears to still stand, in some capacity, today. At what intersection was this building located? Extra points for whoever can also name this slipshod form of building.
