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 started this blog two years ago and after a year and change (har) I slowed down on posting because I was tired of picking up pennies and trying to come up with something clever to say about it every day. So I moved to a neighborhood where my chances of finding fifty dollar bills might be better. I'm in the Financial District now and I still pick up change every day and the training has paid off. It paid $17 in fact. I found $17 on John Street! It was next to a car, someone had clearly lost it from a pocket while getting out of the car. A ten and seven ones.
Also, about two months ago, I dove on a fiver that was loose on the platform of the uptown 4,5,6 trains at 14th street during morning rush. So, I'm up $22 and ready to start posting again.
I figure I've collected about $5 of small change in the months that I didn't post. So, I'm adding $32 to my collected total.
