Originally promoted as The Ferris Wheel, then The Pepsi Globe, and then as The Observation Wheel, the mall's tallest attraction-to-be is now referred to as the Dreamview Observation Wheel. As originally planned, it was to stand 541 feet high. After a brouhaha with the nearby Teterboro Airport, the height of the proposed structure was reduced to 286 feet.

  1. Isn't PepsiCo based in Purchase, New York and not New Jersey? Even before it's current headquarters, it was located in the city on Park Avenue, during a time when men still wore hats.

  2. Anon,

    Correct you are...and, as well, correctly this caption now reads.

    Thanks much for perusing and posting here @ the SHOPPING MALL MUSEUM...and for straightening out the location of the PepsiCo home office.

    Cheers,
