The Money Floor (Alas, Only Pennies)

The Standard Grill in the Standard Hotel in New York has a very unusual floor: it's made of pennies! I guess if you're a couple of pennies short on tips, just pry them off the floor!

It is not illegal to glue pennies to the floor. Once it is in your possession you own it. It is illegal to "fraudulently" deface or mutilate currency or negotiable instruments. (18 U.S.C. 331)

In other words, scribbling all over a dollar bill is legal. Trying to turn a $1 bill into a $100 bill is illegal.

I think the penny floor is awesome and I am going to do it to a floor in my own home.

Oh come on- it looks awesome, and given that it's the Standard I'm sure they sealed it up good and proper. Now.. I want to see one done in dimes!
