Pepsi-Cola Sign Designated a Landmark


Long Island City’s iconic Pepsi-Cola sign was designated a landmark by the Landmark Preservation Commission on Tuesday, April 12th, in the company of thirty additional structures across the five boroughs. The sign has been a part of the East River shoreline since 1936 where it originally stood on top of the Pepsi-Cola bottling plant, which was shut down in 1999. The sign was then relocated a short distance away from its original site, and since 2009, the 147 foot-long sign has rested in Gantry Plaza State Park, where it has become a destination for tourists and New Yorkers, alike.
