Yep, that's Washington Square Arch, the start of Fifth Avenue (IIRC) and the entrance to Washington Square Park and that certainly is a '60 Poncho. I don't think this is from BAT.

I think you and Lemko have covered the identifiable cars in this shot. Given that it's Greenwich Village there should be a VW or MG somewhere but I don't see one.

In front of the Mercury could be another ~62 Ford, with a 59 Chevy in front of that.

Definite Lancia in the top of that rear quarter panel/trunk/C-pillar relationship.

Yes very much a Lancia, but the question is which Lancia.
The Mk I version shown was very rare but the next one (a little more common) had most unusual features>
No B-pillar or rear door handle>
But four big doors for easy access-LINK>
Pretty cool IMHO.

It first hit the road around 1959, I don't want to cheat, name is on the tip of my tongue.
Pretty car, I get a very "camelot" vibe from it, somehow.
