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 neo-Gothic iron gateway, captured here in 1908, marks the entrance to an institution whose reputation is built around tolerance and opportunity, despite its early origins as a men-only establishment. After a late 1800's renaming, the institution became known by the same name it is still referred to today. Where is this gateway and to what institution does it belong?
