New York Wheel Moonlight Arrival

Starting in the wee hours of an Autumn morning in 2016, the first eight major component parts…length 135’, weight 275 tons each…for the world’s soon-to-be largest observation wheel arrived by ship into New York Harbor. Covering this unique event with land-based and water-based crews as well as two drones, Beehive created this teaser piece to give global media a sense of the enormity and overall impact that design and erection of the Wheel will bring to the city. The eight pieces will eventually come together to form the four primary support legs for the 630’ structure.
