Turn this rock into cash

New Yorkers can still profit from the boom.

But it's not on Wall Street or in real estate.

It's seems a big boom and brilliant yellow streak in the early morning sky caught the attention of people just north of New York City over the weekend.

Collector Darryl Pitt figures it was a meteorite's fireball.

He's offering ten grand to the first person who turns over a chunk of the space rock.

Pitt is the curator of the private Macovich Collection.

He says the money will go to anyone who can produce about a two-pound piece of the suspected meteorite.
