Meter Coin Collector – Yes, he uses a key and in the early days of Yorkville,  Community on the East Side of Manhattan a young boy followed one of these guys around, and yes, he left the key one day. That little boy was in the money for a time and then he sold the key to another young boy who thought that he was in seventh heaven. The first time he used the key on 2nd Avenue he got nailed.
