I Saw the Sign

The iconic Pepsi-Cola sign that topped Pepsi’s bottling factory in the 1940s was restored in the 1990s after sustaining storm damage. Despite not technically being old enough due to that restoration, the sign was granted landmark status in April 2016. Community support for preserving a piece of Long Island City’s manufacturing history was intense and unwavering throughout the 28-year long landmarking process.
