On Chicago Transit Authority Trains, the area with two seats at the front and back of each car that is separated by a wall from all the other seats on the train. It is relatively isolated and gives some privacy to people who sit in them. So named because it is also allows a homeless person space to sleep, and occasionally defecate, without being noticed.
Bob: "Hey, let's go sit in those seats, nobody will bother us."
Jim: "No way! That's the hobo corner, it smells like piss!"
