I don't think so, if you are talking about the triangle of land opposite the former hospital. Loew's Sheridan ( where I saw my first movie[sob]) occupied that spot until 1970. Wasn't this photo taken earlier?


Ok, so I don't think this is right: it's all based on memory and Google maps. Could the VU possibly be in the little triangular park at the intersection of East Broadway, Essex and Canal? It's close to Ludlow St. 165 East Broadway could possibly be the curved cornice on the left and St Teresa's could be the church in right background.
On another note: is there a name for people like me trying to research these photos? I find your queries almost irresistible: combining my desire to find the locations with my memories of the city and my interest of the prior history of the city and also curiosity if anyone else remembers it, so lovely, as I do.

You could be entirely correct, the other Greenhaus pics were all taken on the East side. Might go try and track this down and try to verify it.

Yeah, I'm the same way. I can't get enough of this stuff.I trust you've checked out Bob Egan's site (which is waaaaaay more detailed about these searches than mine).
