Proposed Staten Island Ferris Wheel and Visibility Experiment
In the above map, the range was increased to 200,000 meters. The blue area are those areas where the street surface is visible from the top of the proposed ferris wheel which will be located in the St. George Section of Staten Island (at the center of the circle). Notice that big sections of Bay Ridge and Sunset Park in Brooklyn will have their surface areas visible including lower Manhattan and even parts of Boro Park near the Washington Cemetary. The area south of the ferris wheel will not be visible but areas to the west will be visible because of lower elevations near the north shore of the island. Perhaps in the future, a passenger on the elevated "F" train (culver line) will catch a glipse of the wheel when the train approaches the Bay Parkway station.
