Pepsi-Cola Sign

Glance across the East River from Manhattan and you cannot miss the red cursive Pepsi-Cola sign that has resided in Long Island City since 1936. The northern section of Gantry Plaza State Park was home to a Pepsi bottling plant that closed in 1999, and the sign has lived on since as an iconic part of the Queens waterfront—having been lowered from its original location to its final, prominent position in the park in 2009. The sign was designated a New York City landmark in August 2016.
