This reminds me of that ‘other’ Big Apple; New York City. In 1999 they sealed a time capsule that isn’t supposed to be open for 2-3,000 years. I have it marked on my calendar but forget the exact date. It is designed by Calatrava;

The museum is expanding and I think the time capsule will have to be moved somewhere else on the property. Hopefully, they won’t crack it open by mistake.

If you’re visiting be careful. It’s not in the safest area.

Seriously? The upper west side of Manhattan has some if the most expensive residential buildings in America? A beautiful neighborhood adjacent to Central Park.

Sorry, I was talking about the “Big Apple” of Martinsburg, WV. I haven’t been to the “Big Apple” of NY.
