At 630 feet, the New York Wheel is set to become the tallest observation wheel in the world. Located on the northern end of Staten Island, the Wheel will provide incredible views of Manhattan and is expected to attract 30,000 visitors per day. Each of the 36 capsules will hold up to 40 people and when fully loaded, the Wheel will entertain over 1,400 with a view of the Statue of Liberty and lower Manhattan. DVS, a division of Ross & Baruzzini, was involved in the development a threat and risk assessment for the facility, development of security criteria, and design and construction administration of all electronic security systems. These systems include visitor screening, vehicle interdiction, and emergency call systems, and required close coordination with the NYPD Counter Terrorism Division, FDNY, and other First Responder agencies.
