7. A Statue of Ralph Kramden Stands Just Outside The Port Authority
The 4,000-pound bronze sculpture of Ralph Kramden, the fictional bus driver from The Honeymooners, sculpted by Larry Nowlan, stands proudly in the southwest corner of the terminal across from Eighth Avenue. The South Wing opened in 1950 which makes it a fitting location for the statue as that is the same time Ralphie was driving his fictional bus on TV Land.
TV Land’s decision to erect statues to commemorate the characters on the popular channel was made in 1999, well after the shows that it was honoring had first aired. Ralphie was the first of the series of statues to be installed in New York City.
