Welcome to the Finger Lakes! Our theme song:

In a town this size, there's no place to hide
Everywhere you go, you meet someone you know...
In a smokey bar, in the backseat of your car
In your own little house, someone's sure to find you out
What you do and what you think
What you eat and what you drink...

New York prospector finds gold

Raffi at work
While Dicovery Channel's ill fated amateur gold miners were freezing their collective tuches off in Alaska, our fellow New Yorker Raffi Stepanian has been finding gold right on the sidewalks of our fair state.
Raffi Stepanian, a self-styled urban prospector, has discovered enough tiny jewellery fragments hidden in the sidewalks of the city's Diamond District to make a living.
Using nothing more than a Styrofoam cup, tweezers and a butter knife, he collects hundreds of dollars worth of gold, diamonds and rubies each week.
While the Empire State may not be creating as many jobs as Texas, there are still some free market opportunities if one looks hard enough, we guess.
