Downtown Brooklyn's Long Island University has come to dominate the area surrounding this week's cornerspotter in the 60 years since it was pictured. The corner of Dekalb and Hudson avenues is now overshadowed by the university's William Zeckendorf Health Sciences Center, and a stretch of Hudson Avenue has been included in the university's gated campus and now only serves foot traffic. Commenter architrance who correctly identified the corner notes that the large building in the rear of the image along Dekalb Avenue now serves as a parking garage for the university.
