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 photograph was taken when the building was relatively new, in the first half of the 20th century. The regal architecture of the building was meant to draw in customers by showcasing the institution's solvency. Although much of this neighborhood was decimated by roads advocate Robert Moses, this intersection remains intact. This site has hosted several ventures over the decades. What is the intersection at which the photograph was taken?
