The End of the NYC Trip

Since my last post, I have made a ton of finds. Here are the details:
  • 2 pennies in Times Square
  • 2 pennies in Central Park
  • 12 pennies at 34th Street Station (Oldest was a 1962)
  • 2 pennies on 28th Street
  • 2 pennies at Penn Station
  • 1 quarter, 1 nickel, 12 pennies on table at bagel shop in Newark Airport
  • 1 nickel & 1 penny at a Newsstand in the A concourse. I was very proud of these finds, as they were so far under the counter, that I had to get a magazine insert and use it to push out the coins.
  • 1 20 cent Euro coin at Chock Full o'Nuts - Does not count toward the totals
  • 1 penny at STL Airport
  • 1 dime & 2 pennies at Schnuck's Coinstar
  • 1 dime & 1 penny at Arby's in Bettendorf, Iowa, where I was for work this week.
If you couldn't tell from the finds, I did very well while I was in New York. I found change every day, even if it was mostly pennies. I think if I moved there, I would do much better in the race. Of course, I couldn't afford to live there, even with all the extra pennies I would find! :-)

Total since last post - $0.92
Total for the Race - $274.57

Of course I'm still hitting up the Astros, just not as often, it's hard to get out there as frequently with work and gas prices sky rocketing. But I'm there for all the BIG give-aways and a few games in between. How's MO? You'll have to let me know if you're ever coming to town and gonna make it to a game. So sorry that we had to SWEEP your Mets this past weekend. I was thinking about you!

Gotta talk smack about the Mets, huh?

See you in the playoffs! Oh wait, you won't be there! :-)
