This area may look familiar if you've ever waited in line at Grimaldi's... but was it taken before or after the pizza shop inhabited the area? Guess what year this photograph was taken, and we'll update later with the answer and more details.

UPDATE: This photo of Old Fulton Street was taken on January 21, 1978 (however, some have argued that it must have been taken earlier, and that the NYPL has the date wrong in their caption). Grimaldi's (nee Patsy's) didn't open until 1990.
