Hint: This Tower Was Named After a Prominent NY Figure

New, 4 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!

Pictured here amidst its opening in 1929, this building was designed in the Italianate style in part by a Cooper Union graduate. The building was originally named after a prominent New York figure, although it goes by a new name these days. Where is this structure, and what name did it go by in 1929?
