LOCATION: NEW YORK
A Ferris Wheel has opened in Times Square
Rides last 12 minutes and cost between $15 and $35
Customers get a bird's eye view of midtown Manhattan
the so-called 'Crossroads of the World'
New Yorkers say the attraction has lifted their spirits
"I don't remember the last time I've been on a Ferris wheel, really. That was so much fun. I thought it was one of the nicer ideas to do for New York and, you know, opening up."
"Oh, I loved it. It was really fun. It was special to be able to go that high in a Ferris wheel in Times Square. How often do you get that opportunity? Never."
But some aren't so impressed
"This was eh. It wasn't exciting at all. I didn't feel like it was worth the $30. I thought I could go up to the elevator in one of the hotels and get a better view."
The attraction lasts until September 12
Rides are available from noon to midnight
