This is a very complex question and there's not a simple answer. If it were a published work before 1923, it would be public domain now. If it was unpublished, then it is protected until 70 years after the author's death. If you don't know the author, then it's 120 years after the work was done.
The NYPL says "The copyright and related rights status of this item has been reviewed by The New York Public Library, but we were unable to make a conclusive determination as to the copyright status of the item. You are free to use this Item in any way that is permitted by the copyright and related rights legislation that applies to your use." which basically means "You're on your own."
Probably this was taken by Chester Bushong, who died in 1939, which would be more than 70 years ago, so you'd be safe. But if it was taken by someone else at his studios, you might not be. And since technically, the photographer is "unknown", you have to wait until 120 years, and we don't even have the precise year it was taken, so...good luck?
"Probably" it's public domain. It's also unlikely anyone with standing is looking to claim ownership. But it's nearly impossible to be sure - sadly, as is true with many old photographs.
