‘PEPSI SIGN’ A LANDMARK:

The colorful Pepsi Cola sign, which is an immediately identifying sign of the Long Island City waterfront in Queens, became designated as an official New York City landmark last week by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.

The sign had been under consideration for 28 years. It stands in Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City facing the East River and Manhattan. Meenakshi Srinivasan, Chairwoman of the LPM, stated:

“Its prominent siting and its frequent appearances in pop culture have made it one of the most endearing and recognizable icons on the Queens waterfront.”
