What Should They Name the Enormous Staten Island Ferris Wheel?

The flotilla of boats passes by the London Eye during the Diamond Jubilee Thames River Pageant on June 3, 2012 in London, England. For only the second time in its history the UK celebrates the Diamond Jubilee of a monarch. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II celebrates the 60th anniversary of her ascension to the throne. Thousands of well-wishers from around the world have flocked to London to witness the spectacle of the weekend's celebrations. The Queen along with all members of the royal family will participate in a River Pageant with a flotilla of a 1,000 boats accompanying them down the Thames.

The city is reportedly in talks with Plaza Capital Group Management LLC to build a 600-foot Ferris wheel on Staten Island (close to the ferry landing, obviously.) If the plans actually go through, it would surpass the 443-foot London Eye to become the largest cantilevered observation wheel in the world, and it would probably have pretty fantastic views of Lower Manhattan. In which case, it's going to need a cool name, like the London Eye (but not "The London Eye," because it's not in London, and that name is taken.) Let's come up with suggestions for Mayor Bloomberg, who probably reads this blog every day. Not that we can think of any. The Ferrisgeddaboutit Wheel? We'll show ourselves out.
