Hint: Traffic and Skyscrapers Replaced These Rowhouses

New, 6 comments

Welcome back to Cornerspotter, Curbed's game in which you try to identify the location of a particular building or streetscape in a historic photograph from the Museum of the City of New York. Impress us and your fellow Curbed readers with your uncanny insight into New York City and its past!

The block that held these rowhouses has seen a lot of different developments in the 80 years since this photo was taken, but the biggest change was spurred by the automobile. The cobblestone street was replaced with several lanes of traffic long ago, and today the buildings on this block completely dwarf these houses. Where did these buildings stand? Leave your guesses in the comments.
