The New York Wheel has been popping up in the news more and more as the days go on. The person who is to be the general manager for New York’s 60-Story Observation Wheel has been announced!

Set to open in the year 2018, the New York Wheel broke ground early yesterday afternoon when the four pedestals that will be responsible for holding up the wheel started their installation.

In 2017, the NYC Wheel is finally set to open here on SI by the ferry terminal and baseball park. But that doesn’t mean the celebration and fun can’t start a little early.

Today, we give you a series of interviews , originally uploaded to the official New York Wheel YouTube account, from some key players to the completion of the project, as well as in the north shore community.
