Hot diggity damn. 21 cents in four blocks.

Wet dime found in front of flower stands at deli on southwest corner of 1st Avenue and 13th Street. It was in a small puddle of clean water in front of carnations and baby's breath. 9:31 a.m.

Penny found on 13th Street behind the old Palladium, in front of the Bank Street Daycare. 9:42 a.m.

Second dime found in front of Blimpie's on the corner of 4th Avenue and 13th Street. I was running for the light (shortest light in Manhattan is the 13th Street light at 4th Avenue) and had to put the brakes on to pick up the dime. Still made the light. 9:43 a.m.

People in this town must be *rich.*

TOTAL to date = .37 cents

Hey Mame,

I like the screenshot of the google map, but you can actually embed the map and/or Street View (Click "Link To This Page" and then "Customize and Preview"). If you are in Street View when you do that you'll be able to embed the street view, otherwise you'll embed the map.

I also suggest you create one map (stick it in the sidebar, perhaps) and add a pin where each coin was found. Make pin color/size/type equal to value/date/etc.
