New York – Free Stuff

A reader just pointed out to us a great source for absolutely free items – Craig’s List.

Now, I recommend that you proceed with caution – don’t meet the given in any dark alleys – and make sure that Free really means free – but check this out

These are some treasures on offer for Free at Craigs List New York now:

  • 6.5 ft artificial Christmas Tree in Briarwood (just in time!)
  • 30 gallon fish tank with a red slide turtle in Staten Island (hi, is this turtle big enough for a meal?)
  • 27″ GE Color TV (East Village)
  • A cat (Canarsie)

Aside from that there are a lot of matresses and futons and some people claiming to have sports tickets.

Happy shopping this weekend!
