Here’s an image from of the multiple storefronts at 101-115 West 116th Street. Looks like the sort of limestone facade and casement window design that are found along many of the older commercial thoroughfares around the boroughs of NYC. The Crown would have been towards the middle of the block at the left most lot line in this image (assuming # 101 is at the corner of Lenox).

It would also have been just about directly across the street from the Empress Theater, which operated briefly during the same period in the small low lying building to the left of the mosque (the corner building with the large green bulb on top) also shown in the image.
