New York Times Capsule

A charming little story in today’s Times by Alan Feuer is about “the City Reliquary, a tiny storefront museum in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where you can find New York artifacts, both marvelous and mundane, including a large assortment of Kings County beer coasters and an old, rusting hunk of the Williamsburg Bridge.” If the City Reliquary is still around in fifty twenty five years, it might include pieces from such long-forgotten relics as the JMZ train line and low-rise historic buildings, or snippets of a Yeah Yeah Yeah's music video.
