How would you like to get money for nothing, like three dollars, and sixty-five cents a year? It's possible that this could be the case for you in most parts of Brooklyn, New York. There's money on the streets, and sidewalks in Brooklyn to be found, and you don't have to report it to the police. Because it's not considered to be 'Lost, and Found' property, by The New York State Laws.So, it's yours to keep when you find it.

The most common money to be found on the streets and sidewalkss in Brooklyn is the penny (one cent). They're thrown there, by people who doesn't know the value of them much. Although the worth of the penny is a diminutive one but, still, influential when you're counting to make up one dollar. Besides, it's sometimes hard-earned money, that's not well spent.

The penny is a coin. It's brass plated, and almost have no smell to it. Besides it, there's the nickle (five cents), the dime (ten cents), and the quarter (twenty-five cents). All were made silver plated. And, there's the one dollar coin, which is gold plated. None of these are thrown away intentionally, but the penny does.

The penny is treated like an old dog, kicked to the curb by its master, because he doesn't need its services any longer.

But the penny's not a dog; it can be used to buy you something at the grocery store, or help you to pay your utility bills someday! Why throw it away purposefully, is a question most difficult for me to find a rebuttal to. Because it doesn't seem logical.

America has one of the most powerful currencies in the world. And, there's lots of it in New York. You may find a large amount of money on the streets and the sidewalks in Brooklyn now and then, but the penny's there to be found daily. Still, most people has no interest in picking them up. They walk by them like they've no value. For one man only, the penny's worth doesn't matter, because money is money, any way he look at it.

That man is the Jewish man.

The Jewish man stops and pick up the pennies he sees on the streets and sidewalks in Brooklyn. He's not embarrassed from doing it. He realized how important it is to have continuous services for his utility, and mobile phones and being short of one penny to pay for it could make the difference between him and having uninterupted services for his devices. Therefore, the penny owed on his bills must be paid to the utility or mobile phone companies, before the interrupted service is restored. So, for him, 'every penny counts'! And, finding a few of them on the streets and the sidewalks is a marvellous help indeed!

We know that money is good only when you can use it to buy something you want or need. But we're not living in a jungle where there's no banks, and use for it. A matter of fact, everything will cost you, once you're living in New York. There no 'free ride' in New York City to chatter about. 'Show me the money' comes before the ride. That's the way it goes, in 'La Jaula de Concretó' (Concret Jungle).

I've seen the penny on the streets mostly in Brooklyn, where some of the poorest American citizens live. It's very hard to believe that people will throw away the penny (one cent), when there are many homeless and hungry people in the five boroughs of Brooklyn. It makes it seem as easy for money to come by those who, on purpose, throw it away. When it can be saved up to a certain amount, and donate it to Charity.

The folks that throw the penny away are ridiculously stupid (no disrespect). I say also, that it's better to save it, and bag it up after it reaches a good amount, then take it to the bank (if not CHARITY), to be exchanged for paper currencies. One million pennies isn't a bad thing to seek exchanges for. Only the smart people knows it.

Finding three dollars, and sixty-five cents in pennies a year, on the streets and sidewlks in Brooklyn, New York, and saving them up, means that you're lucky to have money that you didn't break one sweat for. Isn't that cool?
