Hello Kitty Time Capsule in New York City

Sebastian Masuda has created 10 different capsules that will be placed in 10 different cities around the world “uniting the world together and sharing their futures.” Last year the first “Kawaii” inspired statue was placed in Miami, and this year, one has been erected in New York, as well as in Amsterdam.

The Hello Kitty time capsule is now on display in New York at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza (East 47th Street and Second Avenue) and will continue to be until September 13th.
