Hint: A Winning Field That Preceded Baseball's Golden Age

New, 7 comments

Welcome to CornerSpotter, Curbed's regular game in which you, fair readers, consult archival streetscape photos or postcard illustrations to identify the building(s) and/or location presented. Time to tap that reservoir of urban minutiae and flaunt it before your fellow readers. Fire away in the comments, and we'll reveal the correct identity and backstory tomorrow.

Sports haven't made much of a mark on Cornerspotter, and so today let's all rally around this here ball field for which there are no traces left in the streetscape. While the neighborhood boasts its share of greenfields and structured open space on account of 60 years of wholesale demolition and redevelopment, this spot went the opposite direction. The site is now densely developed by another singular entity, and the baseball tenant's glory years enjoyed on these pastures failed to translate to new, sturdier confines. Give us the venue name and address and you win!
