Man Mines Diamonds in Midtown Sidewalks
Anyone up for trying this on South Hill St. or Broadway in Los Angeles? We have our own jewelry district, shops and all.
Raffi Stepanian, 43, earns his cash scouring the sidewalks in Midtown’s Diamond District for hidden treasure – chips of rubies, diamonds, platinum and gold that somehow fell off their owners’ jewelry and became lodged in the cracks between cement slabs or hopelessly stuck in a piece of gum some passerby flippantly spit out onto the street, according to a report.
In less than a week, Stepanian told The New York Post he amassed enough gold for two sales worth nearly $850 on 47th Street.
