• Developers want to put a Ferris wheel on Boston's Long Wharf


    BOSTON - Developers are working on plans to bring a giant Ferris wheel to Boston. 

    A group from Canada has been pitching a 200-foot observation wheel on Boston's Long Wharf.

    The structure would look similar to Montréal's La Grande Roue de Montréal and London's Eye.

    The Freedom Wheel as it would be called is so preliminary that organizers aren't releasing pictures.

    The project has no connection to another Ferris wheel being pitched for the Charlestown Navy Yard

    It would first have to overcome several hurdles including applying for use of Long Wharf and zoning approval.
