Let’s take a moment back in time, a time before technology and when hard labor was in fact extremely painful and even deadly. A time when colossal monuments and structures were not unheard of but only for the rich and powerful, for dynasty’s and more.

In New York’s Central Park not Central Perk, this isn’t the show “Friends,” we come across a great monument that stands about 69 feet high with an astonishing weight of 220 tons. Now that’s a great deal of weight. This monument is known as “Cleopatra’s Needle.”

In the late 1800’s, the needle as it was called, began a long journey by a railway system designed to carry this great and historical piece to it’s current resting point. Sold to the US by Egypt in 1879, it wasn’t until January of 1881 that it began it’s lift upwards to the heavens above. Another obelisk had been given not sold, to London in 1878. It’s noted that beneath the monument a time capsule is buried underneath along with other contents that some have no clue as to what is inside.
