It's all about the Benjamins — fake Benjamins.

Port Authority police say a traffic stop on the Manhattan side of the Holland Tunnel led to two arrests for possessing counterfeit $100 bills.

Police stopped a car as it was entering the tunnel at around 5:30 p.m. Thursday for having dark tinted windows.

According to police, 21 counterfeit $100 bills were nestled in the sleeve of the car door on the driver's side.

Nineteen-year-old Omar Gray and 22-year-old Miguel Noel, both of Brooklyn, were arrested on a charge of criminal possession of a forged instrument, a class C felony.

No information on their attorneys was immediately available.
