I find money on the streets of New York City almost every day. Nearly every day!
Here I'll post where, when, and how much. When I hit $100,000 I'll stop blogging about it.
TOTAL found money since June 20, 2008 is $62.29.

Union Square with CNN
Back in action today when I found one penny during the morning dog walk. There were Parks employees using a leaf blower to gather all the salt leftover from the snow and ice of the last few weeks. Maybe next time they shouldn't dump so much. I think the blowing uncovered the penny.
UPDATE: Richard Roth and his crew from CNN - the talented and dog-loving Mr. Shine and the lovely Carla (good luck with the internship!) - came with me and Mishka on a walk today to see if I could scare up some spare change. After coming up empty on 4th Ave and 13th and 14th Streets I felt like the North-west side of Union Square park could be good. 13 cents good! I found one very corroded dime, a corroded penny and, then another very shiny penny right next to someone's foot (she didn't seem to mind that I picked it up, but maybe the camera intimidated her from saying anything).
Then Richard started bragging about how he was going to find a quarter so we kept walking and I found another penny on 13th Street. Richard didn't find anything but a fun story, I hope. Thanks, Roth & Crew, Mishka and I had a great time.
When the story gets posted online I'll put a link here. Should be sometime between the 5th and 13th of February.
SECOND UPDATE: More pennies found on street and one on the bus.
