$600,000 Violin left in NYC Taxi-Cab Returned to Korean Prodigy

Just last week a colleague of mine left his wallet in a DC cab and the driver actually found his business card in the wallet and dropped it back at work (though $100 was missing and I considered it a finders fee).

Luxist has the skinny on a $600,000 violin that was left in a NYC cab by acclaimed violinist Hahn-Bin. Apparently, the 22-year-old Korean musician was returning to his Chinatown apartment in Manhattan from the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and
left the 18th-century instrument, reportedly worth some $600,000, in the cab, along with his credit card. More details HERE.
