New York City is my hometown. I was born in Brooklyn and was moved to Long Island when it was time for me to go to school. Like everyone, I like to go home now and then just to keep connected. Sure, I read the New York Times online, but there is nothing like being there… there is nothing like staying at a midtown hotel and watching the active life on the streets as the taxi drops me off at 11pm.
With New York being America’s crossroads to the world, I thought I would find something interesting in my pocket change. Unfortunately, this was not the case. I should have expected that since I did not go to many tourist areas, preferring to visit friends. I was not there long enough to visit any of the local coin stores either.
It was a fun trip even though my pocket change did not yield any surprises.
