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.
I'm not going out to look for *anything* until the weather improves.
Needless to say, I found nothing today but here's a pretty picture of diatoms. Some of them look coin-ish. My apologies to the scientist who took this image - I can't find your name. Maybe you took this from samples harvested in Antarctica?
UPDATE: Ken, I think you had this image on your Antarctica blog - is that possible?
I found a dime last night stuck between my building the sidewalk - I had to go out because of the damn dog. He likes to lift his leg more than once a day, the freak.
This year's Tulip Patrol reports that our tulips in Union Sq are only up about 4 inches, but soon they will look like these over-achievers shot at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden last spring. I found a penny by the flower beds in Union Square park this morning, next to a pink, bald, partially chewed, dead squab (baby pigeon).
Someone must be crying over his piggy banks right now because I found four dimes yesterday all together with a penny at Madison Square Park. When I am filthy stinking rich, will I pick up dimes when I drop them? Also found two pennies walking to brunch with baby.
In the last four days I've found only three cents. Subway, sidewalk, and sidewalk again. I have been terribly distracted so maybe I missed a few. It happens. Too bad, it would've been fun to find a bloody quarter on the Ides of March. Maybe next year.
I got on the R train today and there were a circle of people staring at a penny on the train floor. I looked around at everyone in the circle and no one moved so I bent down slowly - while the train was in motion - and plucked little Abe. Then I stood up and smiled.
Then I found another really salty one in Union Square.
UPDATE: Found another penny at my daughter's school. In the doorway - not in anyone's pocket.
