Pepsi-Cola Sign in Queens Gains Landmark Status

The Pepsi-Cola sign, in what is now Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City, Queens, faces the East River and Manhattan.

The Pepsi-Cola sign in Long Island City — a dazzling swirl of red curlicue letters that evokes innocent days of summer, heavy industry in Queens and a spectacular disregard for the waterfront in the mid-20th century — is now an official New York City landmark.

“Its prominent siting and its frequent appearances in pop culture have made it one of the most endearing and recognizable icons on the Queens waterfront,” Meenakshi Srinivasan, the chairwoman of the Landmarks Preservation Commission, said in a statement.

The sign has been under consideration by the commission for 28 years. It was one of eight sites on the commission’s backlog agenda to be given landmark status on Tuesday.

At the time of the first hearing, in 1988, the sign stood atop Pepsi’s enormous bottling plant on the East River, which it had crowned since 1940. The Artkraft Strauss Sign Corporation reconstructed the sign in 1993, after heavy damage was inflicted by a winter storm.

PepsiCo closed the plant in 1999 and sold all but a 60-by-200-foot parcel of its 21-acre property to the Queens West Development Corporation.

The carved-out parcel accommodated the relocated sign, which PepsiCo was canny enough to recognize as a marketing opportunity that could not possibly be duplicated under existing zoning rules. The “P” and “C” are each 44 feet high, or roughly four stories.

By the 21st century, the sign had become so integral to the Queens waterfront that the TF Cornerstone development concern carved an eight-story notch out of its new apartment tower at 4610 Center Boulevard to accommodate the structure.

Technically, the current structure is not old enough to be considered for landmark status, because it was built less than 30 years ago.

But Damaris Olivo, a spokeswoman for the commission, said the 1993 reconstruction “was faithful to the original sign, which was approximately 50 years old at the time it was restored, and the sign has received a great deal of support from the public throughout the backlog process.”

Other properties from the backlog agenda that were designated on Tuesday were: the mid-19th-century William H. Schofield farmhouse on City Island in the Bronx; the Fort Hamilton Parkway entrance to the Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn and the Green-Wood Cemetery Chapel; the 18th-century Van Sicklen House in the Gravesend neighborhood of Brooklyn; the main sanctuary, parish house and rectory of St. Michael’s Episcopal Church on the Upper West Side of Manhattan; an early 19th-century Federal-style house at 57 Sullivan Street in Greenwich Village; the Second Empire-style Ahles House in Bayside, Queens; and the Vanderbilt Mausoleum on Todt Hill in the New Dorp section of Staten Island.

The commission postponed until June 28 a vote on designating Immaculate Conception Church in the Melrose neighborhood of the South Bronx, Ms. Olivo said. The Rev. Francis Skelly, pastor of the Roman Catholic church, has strongly opposed designation.

“We are an immigrant parish,” he said recently. “Financially, we break even. But we’re always a boiler explosion away from being in financial trouble.”

    ​On December 1, 1961, Claes Oldenburg’s The Store opened for business in New York’s Lower East Side neighborhood. During a two-month run, Oldenburg used the back half of a rented storefront space to create the objects that he put on sale in the front half, thereby short-circuiting the studio and the art gallery. Hung on the walls, arrayed in vitrines, and mounted on display stands, Oldenburg’s plaster objects mimicked the goods sold in local secondhand and discount stores—primarily clothing and foodstuffs, but also advertising paraphernalia, as in Pepsi-Cola Sign. According to Oldenburg, The Store was his response to the possibility that “art is doomed to be bourgeois,” or materialistic. The intensified, overwrought qualities of Pepsi-Cola Sign—its lumpy shape, garish hues, feverish drips of paint, and distorted scale—manifest the viselike grip that consumer culture has on the distribution and consumption of art under capitalism.

    Pepsi-Cola Sign - Long Island City - LIC - Queens- New York

    Pepsi-Cola sign

    Sign in Queens, New York

    Not to be confused with the Coca-Cola sign in Times Square.

    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.

    Design[edit]

    The original sign was manufactured by the General Outdoor Advertising Corporation and installed atop the Pepsi-Cola plant at 46th Avenue and 5th Street.[1] It faced west toward the headquarters of the United Nations in Manhattan.[2] The sign read Pepsi:Cola 5c, measured 60 by 120 feet (18 by 37 m), and had a 50-foot (15 m) depiction of a Pepsi bottle. The characters "5c" were in blue, with blue neon light tubes, while the other letters were red with red neon, like the current sign.[3][4][5] The Pepsi bottle was 5 inches (130 mm) deep,[1] and illuminated by a pair of 400-watt (0.54 hp) lamps.[2] At the time of the original sign's erection in 1940, Pepsi-Cola had changed its logo the previous year, with a blue outline around the letters of the logo. The removal of the blue outline in 1940 may have influenced the Pepsi-Cola sign's use of red neon tubing.[6]

    The Artkraft Strauss Sign Corporation created the current 1994 sign,[7] which faces west toward the United Nations in Manhattan.[8] It is mounted on a steel grid measuring 49 feet (15 m) tall and 150 feet (46 m) wide. The logo consists of the letters Pepsi:Cola, which are mounted at least 20 feet (6.1 m) above grade and reaching nearly 70 feet (21 m) high. The letters are painted red and aluminum, with 15-millimeter (0.59 in) neon light tubes at the letters' edges.[9] The "P" and "C" are the tallest letters, being 44 feet (13 m) high.[10] A painted aluminum Pepsi bottle is to the right of the letters, with neon light tubes at its edge, and is 50 feet (15 m) tall. It is painted in the style of a Pepsi bottle from the 1970s.[9] The only major difference is the Pepsi bottle depiction, which is 9.5 inches (240 mm) deep because it accommodates an electrical cabinet.[1] The sign's foundations are made of 40 pilings sunken into the layer of underlying bedrock, each of which has four 5-foot-tall (1.5 m) concrete pile caps.[9]

    History[edit]

    Long Island City was developed as a commercial and industrial center in the late 19th and early 20th centuries because it was close to Manhattan and on the East River.[11] Pepsi-Cola was one of the firms that developed factories within Long Island City. In 1937, it purchased three land lots on the East River from Socony-Mobil to expand its Queens operations. It had previously occupied a plant further inland at 47-51 33rd Street.[5]

    Original sign[edit]

    The sign was placed atop Pepsi-Cola's Long Island City plant by August 30, 1940,[3][4] as part of an expansion of its plant.[5] At the time, it was advertised as New York state's longest electrical sign.[4][5] Documents show that the New York City Department of Buildings approved a permit for the sign in May 1940.[12] The sign's construction came at a time when industrial concerns in Long Island City installed large signs atop their buildings, which would be highly visible from Manhattan, the Queensboro Bridge, the Long Island Rail Road, or elevated New York City Subway lines.[13] The city's regulations of the time, including the 1916 Zoning Resolution, banned commercial signs from residential districts,[14] and later limited their surface area to 500 square feet (46 m2) and their height to 40 feet (12 m) above curb level. These regulations strongly affected the placement of such signs.[6]

    The characters "5c" were removed when the price of Pepsi-Cola was raised in the mid-1940s. The bottle design was changed to a contemporary design around the 1970s.[6] By the late 20th century, many of the industrial concerns on Long Island City's waterfront had started to move elsewhere.[1][15] The area was slated for redevelopment as part of the Queens West development project.[16]

    The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) first considered the sign for city-landmark status in April 1988.[17][18] At the time, a PepsiCo spokesman said that since the sign was "almost an icon", the company had chosen to not update the sign to reflect its modern logo.[18]Claire Shulman, the borough president of Queens, proposed moving the sign elsewhere because it would interfere with the Queens West development. PepsiCo objected to this, saying that the company alone controlled the sign's status.[19] At a public hearing held for the sign, two speakers including the Queens borough president's office spoke in opposition to the designation.[20] The LPC did not vote on the designation due to a lack of interest from board members.[7] At the time, and up through the late 1990s, the LPC had never designated a solitary sign as an individual city landmark.[21]

    Restoration and landmark status[edit]

    The original sign was nearly destroyed in the December 1992 nor'easter, and by the end of 1993, the entire sign had been removed. Artkraft Strauss rebuilt the sign in its Manhattan plant, with lettering resembling the original sign. A city spokesperson was quoted as saying, "To change that sign would mean losing a little bit of the texture of New York".[7] Because the LPC had still "calendared" the sign for designation, it was still considering the sign as a landmark, and so aspects of the reconstruction had to be approved by the LPC.[6] By 2000, PepsiCo announced plans to vacate its bottling facility. PepsiCo, Queens West, and the LPC all advocated for the Pepsi-Cola sign to be preserved, with the LPC holding another hearing on whether to preserve the sign.[22] PepsiCo moved all its Queens operations to College Point,[23] and the PepsiCo plant's site was subsequently to become part of the northern portion of Gantry Plaza State Park.[24][25]

    PepsiCo sold its bottling plant in 2003.[1] However, the company stipulated that the sign should remain part of Long Island City's waterfront, and retained ownership of the sign.[2] PepsiCo also kept ownership of a tract of land near its facility, measuring 200 by 60 feet (61 by 18 m), for the sign.[26] In 2004, the PepsiCo sign was relocated 300 feet (91 m) to the south, next to Gantry Plaza State Park, and a new base was constructed.[1][27] The temporary relocation was necessitated because of the demolition of the plant and subsequent construction of Gantry Plaza State Park.[28] The process of removal and deconstruction was documented by photographer Vera Lutter.[2] The sign was then relocated to its original position again in 2008, and was dismantled by late 2008 in preparation for the reinstallation in its permanent position.[27][29] In early 2009, the sign was reassembled in its permanent location in Gantry Plaza State Park.[30][31] PepsiCo continued to maintain the sign.[32][33] The nearby 46-10 Center Boulevard development, within Hunter's Point South immediately east of the park, recessed its lowest eight stories by 12 feet (3.7 m) so that the facade would be 45 feet (14 m) behind the sign.[33]

    In late 2015, the LPC hosted a public hearing on whether to designate the Pepsi-Cola sign as a city landmark; most comments supported the designation, but some parties including the sign's owner opposed it.[20] This was part of a review of 95 listings that had been calendared by the LPC for several decades but never approved as city landmarks.[34][35] The Pepsi-Cola sign was designated a New York City landmark in June 2016.[10][30] Under LPC regulations, landmarks typically had to be 30 years old, although the reconstructed sign' as its design was historically accurate at the time that the latter was destroyed.[10] A JetBlue logo was temporarily installed under the Pepsi-Cola sign between August and October 2019 as part of a promotion approved by the LPC.[36] The presence of the JetBlue sign was criticized by residents as well as online commentators.[8][37][38]
