Question on commuter bike

Im looking to buy a commuter for the NYC area, dont have much money (military). So I found one, but only picture is given, no model or year. Wondering if 70$ is reasonable assuming this bike is in good shape.

Thanks for helping an aspiring cyclist.

Does it fit you? That's quite a large frame. You should be able to stand over the top tube with an inch or two clearance under your crotch. It looks like a lugged steel frame Raleigh. If it's in good working order and fits I'd say it's worth it.
