Cornerspotted: 2nd Ave and Yesler Way

Written by Sarah Anne Lloyd

Yesterday, we asked you to guess where this tricky, triangular intersection is located. Commenter TK was correct in their guess: 2nd Ave and Yesler Way.

The building to the left is now, obviously, a triangular parking lot, but you may have recognized the first building you see at the right as Smith Tower. The former Florence Theater, pictured in 1952 at its former glory, is now stripped-down and leased as office space on top with retail below.

Still, the semi-triangular street configuration remains about the same — despite a significant decrease in glowing lights.
