Big wheel closing !!

Reports in the local media say that the wheel will close within 2 weeks, it was due to run until the summer of 2011 but that has now changed. I must say, i really enjoyed my trips on the wheel, as i'm sure have thousands of others.

I am quite sad about this tbh. I have been on the wheel and it is pretty good. I understand it is blocking the Titanic memorial, but it looks great at night all lit up beside the City Hall (some will disagree!)

I am going to head in some evening next week and get some more shots of it for my photography project.

Why can't they move it elsewhere? near the Odyssey? or was this not viable?

I don't think it would be as profitable to be at the odyssey NYC, being at the city hall is just full of tourists and day trippers.
