Hint: One Half of This Intersection Has Been Partially Renamed

New, 4 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!

Although the structure at this site has been nixed since 1955, when the photograph was taken, the lot still serves the same use. One street that meets at the corner has been renamed at this stretch in years past, although both its original name and new name are still in use at different stretches in the neighborhood today. What intersection is pictured here?

Bonus: What was the street called when it was pictured?
