It's been a while, but we're back with another Guess The Year challenge. Can you guess the year, and (this is easy) what neighborhood this photo was taken in? You can see a larger version of the image here—there are a few hints in the finer details.
We'll update later with the answer and more info on this particular shot. Cheaters and anyone who makes an Instagram joke will be banished from Gothamist and the entire Internet.
UPDATE, 5:50 p.m.: This photo is captioned: "A man lies across a ledge on the south side of Washington Square Park, with New York University and the Twin Towers behind. August 10th, 1979."
