World's tallest Ferris wheel coming to NYC?
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Tourists may soon have a bird's eye view of the Manhattan skyline from a massive Ferris wheel in Staten Island.
A plan is in the works to build a 600-foot Ferris wheel at the ferry terminal that would dwarf the London Eye.
The city hopes to benefit from the more than two million tourists who take the Staten Island ferry every year.
The wheel would tower over the London Eye, which draws 3.5 million visitors each year, by more than 150 feet, making it the tallest in the world.
