I used to work at this former Pepsi, and am so glad the beautiful sign is still there. It looks better than ever in this renovated setting and modern neighborhood. At night it looks even better lit up.

It has become a tourist attraction. In the night the view is incredible. You can take a cruise on the river from here.

Okay lets not go over the top. The sign has been there for what seems like forever and for those who sit in the morning/afternoon commute you see this sign more then you ever thought imaginable. However, it is still an iconic sign
