"outside" corner = esquina.

Spanish needs both these words because it only has "en" for both "in" and "on" in English.

"in the corner" = "en el rincón

and

"on the corner" = en la esquina

Another way I have seen "rincón" used is in the sense of "rincón cultural" - "Cultural corner". It was a section at the end of each chapter of a previous textbook that would talk about different Spanish speaking cultures.
