Found this small leafy branch outside yesterday (new york metro area) and I'm having trouble identifying it, anyone know what plant it may have fallen from?

Euonymus japonicus?

Looks like Eyonymus to me too. For comparison, Japanese Euonymus (Euonymus japonicus)

For comparison, leaf photo of Euonymus fortunei:

No reason to disagree with above IDs - especially if leaf arrangement is opposite as it appears to be.

Poster can aid ID by giving some indication of scale, like placing a coin in the picture. Are those leaves 1/4 inch in size, or 2 inches?

If the arrangement is NOT opposite, I'd suggest Ilex crenata - but those little simple leaves look to be more opposite than not.
