Changepot, the original found money blog maintained by a family from Staten Island, got written up in today's NY Daily News (in the Money Section, naturally). Local NBC news also picked up the story. Update: and so did Gothamist - now the hits and hipsters are really checking in.
Foundmoolah.blogspot.com got a mention too and all three of my piggy banks made the photo. The caption isn't strictly correct because I don't limit finds to the street - like the Humphreys from Staten Island - I'll pick it up from just about anywhere I find it.
Today I found a penny but it was frozen solid into some dirt near the base of a tree. I can't decide if I should go back with a cup of hot water or a screw-driver but I think just I'll wait for a thaw, it's 26F out there.
What have you found lately? Quarters, fins, sawbucks, c-notes? What's the most you've ever found?
Update: I found one penny dangerously close to where my dog was lifting his leg, which is one reason more people don't pick them up, and another one at the gate of the dog run.
Total haul today = .02
