Hint: Not One Person, But Many Lived In This Highbrow Home

New, 3 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!

At the time pictured, this home was not lived in by one person, but many. Despite the substantial change the neighborhood has seen since the early 1900's, the house remains, although it is not used for the same purpose. Its inhabitants have moved far from the neighborhood with the institution that united them. The home is situated around an area that is used for the same purpose it was at the time of the photograph. Where is this building, and what was it used for?
