At Harrison and 180th in the late '50s - early '60s the curb ball homeplate was the NE corner of Harr. and 180. The curbs were curved at the corners. Some corners had sewer covers where the balls could accidentally fall down - drag out the wire hanger. We called it curball, stickball, and off the point. There was also off the wall. Instead of hitting off a "veneer" off the building you just threw it hard against the brick wall - same rules as off the point.
