The differences are the prepositions you're using which can either represent time or place - in this instance it's place.

on the corner- When I saw her, she was standing on the corner waiting for the bus.
in the corner- You've been naughty; please go stand in the corner.
at the corner- I will wait for you at the corner of Elm and Oak (streets).
