World's Largest Paper Cup

Before it was a Sweetheart cup, it was a Lilly Tulip cup, as it is in front of a former Lilly Tulip factory later taken over by Sweetheart. It was placed here so as to be one of the first Riverside sights visible from arriving Westbound trains.

The road construction near the Cup is now complete. The Cup still has a fence around it, but now you can pull up pretty close.

Big cup.

World's Largest Paper Cup

Cup no longer has a stripe of any kind. Not exactly recognizable as a cop right now. Somewhat disappointing. Perhaps they are repainting it to go along with the construction that is nearby. May be worth a stop in the future. But not now.
