Share this post? Indoors, a time capsule station included several antiquated but still functional mechanical devices.
Outdoors, food stalls offered samples, most prepared by families of current P.S. 110 students, from more than a dozen countries. Among them: Puerto Rican guineos en escabeche with chunks of chicken gizzard; German currywurst; Dominican pastelones de platano y de yuca; Panamanian salchichas guisadas; U.S. potato salad (a backup tray was at the ready); South Korean kimbap; Ecuadorian cheese empanandas (before the application of powdered sugar); Filipino suman; and lemonade (provenance unknown, but in wide demand on a sweltering afternoon).
Several servers noted that the variety of food was enjoyed more by the parents than by their finicky children. At the time capsule station, however, the situation was reversed: Most of the kids must never have had their hands on a manual carriage return.
