All this New York history stuff from WNYC reminded me that the good folks over at Gothamist (one of my favorite fun ways to keep up with the goings-on in our great city) have been conducting a fun NYC history experiment of their own for the last several weeks.
Each week, they post a new historic New York photo and ask readers to comment on what year they think the photo was taken, and where. Then they update the posting later in the day with the date and more information about the photo.
Quiz yourself – see if you can guess the year without cheating! Here’s the photo from today’s post:
EDITED TO ADD: Check back on Gothamist for the year and location of the photo, as well as a current photo of the same location!
