See a Penny, Pick it up

See 14,000 pennies, make sure no one else sees you picking them up.

Coming home last night after dinner at Symposium with some friends, I crossed Broadway at 71st street, and noticed in the middle of the road one of those "books" that restaurants use to give you the check. I bent over, picked it up and opened it. There was a zippered compartment, which I opened and saw $$$$$.

I quickly closed it, tucked it under my arm, and hustled on home. Much to my delight, I found $140 and no way of finding the rightful owner.

New York is a great city.
