Today’s NYT Connections Answers for July 1, 2024

The Connections puzzle for July 1 had a Purple category that nobody could have gussed. I began by solving the Yellow category the first and also learned that the word Usher actually means to lead. The Green category came next and all I could of were the words Ponzi Scheme when solving it. That helped actually.

The Blue category on the other hand was a bit of a stranger since I am not really used to U.S. currency. Nonetheless, nothing some Googling couldn’t solve.

With only four words left, I combined them all together to get the Purple category and the NYT Connections puzzle for July 1.
