Hint: Its 1,400 Seats Still Get Filled, But for a Different Reason

New, 1 comment

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!

People still congregate at this approximately 1,400-seat structure, although for a different reason then they would when this picture was taken in the early 1900's. The structure underwent a thorough interior remodeling in the 1930's that lead it to answer "the call of modernity" although it's doubtful that the update has any bearing on the structure now. Where is this two-story building located, and what occupies it now? Extra points if you can name what it was formerly.
