Did you identify the location of this building?

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!

Lots of guesses rolled in for this week’s Cornerspotter, but only one commenter (and one Facebook user) got it right: the building pictured here in 1942 is the Corn Exchange Bank building on Summit Street and Hamilton Avenue in Red Hook. Today, the building is occupied by a Chase Bank. Commenter intristin wants to know if they win a prize for their correct guess and its this: congratulations, your knowledge of small random buildings is on point. Take a peek at what the building looks like now, below.
