Best ATM at Which to Score a Free Twenty Bucks - 2005
AVENUE A, BETWEEN 9TH and 10TH STREETS
The East Village Crawl on a Saturday night leaves most with supermodel-skinny wallets. That's why you've got to learn to do the quick hand-sweep underneath the ATM on AVENUE A, BETWEEN 9TH and 10TH STREETS, directly across the street from the entrance to Tompkins Square Park and 12 steps north of the Pick Me Up Café. By some freak broken mechanism, one person's shitty luck is your treasure. When dispensing crisp twenties, the machine often gets one $20 bill stuck an inch or two before the dispense tray. Those not in the know walk away, seething. Simply reach your arm in; you may just get lucky.
