I found two pennies and, in front of a swanky hotel on the Bowery (times sure have changed), a dime. That's another twelve cents for my fortune.
UPDATE - late night dog walk led us to a QUARTER in the street near the cinema at 13th and Broadway. Paving crews have been digging up 13th Street for two nights now getting it ready for a new coat of blacktop. Apparently one of them lost a quarter in the line of duty. I saw it glinting in the red neon and it's mine now.
Total haul today = .37
TOTAL to date = $12.48
Just needed a nickel and we could've gone the cycle.
