Ralph Kramden Statue at New York City’s Port Authority Bus Terminal


If you walk by the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City on 8th Avenue, you may notice that there is a statue of Ralph Kramden in front. Ralph is a character from the 1950s television show The Honeymooners played by Jackie Gleason who drove a bus for a living. So it is only fitting that he is honored outside the main bus station in NYC.
