This was taken on the waterfront in 1948, a year before the New York Sun's series of columns by Malcolm Johnson, "Crime on the Waterfront" were written. The movie "On the Waterfront" was based on that series.

The photo is titled "Shakeup at Pier 92, N.Y.C., North River and 52nd St." It certainly looks like a scene from the movie with some longshoremen entering the building and other longshoremen surrounding them.
