Cornerspotted: East Tremont & Park Ave., Bronx Savings Bank

Among this week's popular guesses: 1) 14th Street and Eighth Avenue, 2) East Tremont Avenue and Park Avenue, and 3) 96th Street and Amsterdam. The correct answer? This is indeed the former Bronx Savings Bank at that East Tremont corner, just two-and-a-half blocks from where Robert Moses's Cross-Bronx Expressway tore through the neighborhood in the mid-1900's. Commenter CDRM1980 was right to say this building most recently housed a restaurant that has closed down.
