Can anyone guess what corner Webb's Bar-B-Q was located?  An archival photo from The Museum of the City of New York show's a north view on one of Harlem's bustling boulevards.  This building on the west side of the avenue does not exist anymore today.

UPDATE:  In the current photo taken today, one can see that most of the building on the left side had been demolished at one point or another at this section of 8th Avenue and 117th Street.  This section of FDB was littered with vast, unwanted lots until the past decade when construction started replacing the buildings that the landlords abandoned over 3 decades ago.
