The ornate bronze box had been locked up since 1914 and was thought to be one of the country’s oldest unopened time capsules.
A time capsule buried beneath the old Metropolitan Transportation Authority headquarters in downtown Brooklyn was cracked open Wednesday.
As the deadline to tear down the school draws near, officials are looking for former students who might remember exactly where the time capsule was buried.
In 1897, a time capsule was sealed up and hidden away in the cornerstone of what was Bellevue Hospital Medical College in Manhattan. Now, it has been found.
The hole has been dug and the time capsule is just about sealed in Cortlandt.
