Ferris wheel in Raleigh, yes .... Location in Pullen Park, no

I'm with Dana at gogoraleigh.com -- buy the Ferris Wheel. (N&O story conveys Mr. Garrabrant's vision.)

But Pullen Park is small and already bursting with folks on a nice summer weekend. Why not put it in Chavis Park, a beautiful site with a great view of downtown, easy access from Western Boulevard and not a lot of activitity nowadays. Or patch it into those Capital Boulevard transit/redevelopoment plans. If Dix 306 ever happens, and the city acquires some or all of the Dorothea Dix land for a park, put it up there. (h/t: Charles Meeker, 01/07.)

Or it could go in Glenwood South somewhere, if equipped with a breathalyzer.
