Rich Marin of the NY Wheel LLC is installing the giant 630 ft Ferris Wheel on the waterfront in Staten Island, NY, in the next couple of years.
The video is his presentation and update of the Wheel and economic development that he made to the BUCKS BREAKFAST MEETING in June 2014.
The New York Wheel promises to become one of the City’s–and the world’s–great landmark attractions, alongside the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building.
Located on the northeastern side of Staten Island (St. George), the 630-foot, or roughly 60-story, attraction will be the tallest observation wheel in the world and the only one in New York City.
The Wheel will accommodate up to 1,440 people per ride, welcoming as many as 30,000 visitors per day and an anticipated 4+ million visitors per year.
The New York Wheel will be open 7 days a week, approximately 350 days per year (accounting for severe weather days and maintenance) from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m./12 a.m. in the fall, winter and spring
, and staying open as late as 2 a.m. on special occasions.
