The Pepsi-Cola sign is a neon sign at Gantry Plaza State Park in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens in New York City. The sign, visible from Manhattan and the East River, was built in 1940 and originally installed atop PepsiCo (previously Pepsi-Cola)'s bottling factory nearby. It is composed of a 50-foot (15 m) depiction of a Pepsi bottle, as well as lettering that reflected PepsiCo's logo when the sign was commissioned.
The Pepsi-Cola sign was likely manufactured by the General Outdoor Advertising Company and was New York state's longest electric sign when completed. The bottle depiction was replaced in the 1970s, and Artkraft Strauss Sign Corporation rebuilt the rundown sign in 1993. When the Pepsi facility was closed in 2003, the sign was relocated to the park. The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission began holding hearings on whether to make the sign a city landmark in 1988, though it was not designated as such until 2016.

While prepping for a recent trip to NYC, I saved this location as a cool spot to check out for some photos and maybe a glimpse of Manhattan. This spot ended up being my absolute favourite place to visit during my entire trip. The view of Manhattan can't be beat as it's right on the East River. There's a lovely park with lots of seating and the perfect place to have a late-night picnic and watch the sun go down behind the buildings. We came back here several times during our trip and if you're contemplating stopping here, I highly recommend you find the time to do so - you won't regret it!

Take an icon pic of the Pepis sign. Great views of east side Manhattan and walk long the front. Take the boat for $2.75 from the pier near by. Not too many people either.

one of the best view of Manhattan. I recommend go in end of the day, to take the sunset.

Love going here to just hang out. Sign is definitely iconic for the area and I’m glade they kept it after they removed the factory. Also got engaged her :)).
