Welcome back for another round of Where & When, the geography detective game that’s keeping your brain warm for the impending Hot Stove season. Or at least that’s the intention; the more you play this, the more exercise your mind gets and hey, the smarter you become! Plus, you get to brag to your buddies that you know something about the city that they probably don’t; if nothing else, it cuts down your chances of getting mugged >;)
Speaking of challenges, here is the latest:
This place was within the five boroughs until recently. It had been around for quite a long time, and unfortunately it was in this condition for a considerably long time as well. If you know what the name of this building is and where it’s located, then tell us also when it was built, when it first opened for business and when it was closed for good. Bonus if you find a picture of when it was pristine and intact.
Send your best guesses to cixposse at gmail dot com. Alert me on the thread that you’ve sent in your guess and I will verify; as per rules of the game, do not click on the photo credit to find the answer. You’re welcome to discuss any aspects of the challenge, including your tracking methods or knowledge of the general area, without giving away the answer (so be discreet if you can). Above competition, this is also a general place to discuss what you know or learned, so feel free to discuss either. I’ll try to get back with the answer in the evening around six EST.
A Sea Dog for you if you can find all the answers requested first, and a Jones for those who follow. Don’t burst a vessel over this, since I’m asking for a lot of specific info it might take some time to track it all down. Take your time and have fun!
