There aren't many 70's TV show character statues out there so this one has gained a lot of attention. What really interested me was the number of selfie photos with kids who may not have even seen the show. Anyway if you are in the river area is a must see

This is arose Ned the corner from the safe house. Just a little way off the road, up against the river. Pretty fun, as a dorky thing to see. I had to explain it to the kids, and they barely understood, but I did get a fun thumbs up picture.

My girl friends brother in law sculpted it years ago. Needs some TLC though. It's located right on the river walk. You can't miss it.

This bronze statue was erected right next to the river and has many visitors. The real Fonz just played at Wisconsin State Fair last week and of course he went down and visited the site. My wife and I took some of our friends from out East and they were felt it was a nice quick visit that brought back... More

The statue was very small and the paint was peeling. It was probably nice when first made but there has been no upkeep.

Okay, it's a little silly, a statue of a fictional TV character from a show that never accurately portrayed Milwaukee. Still, we love our Bronze Fonz and I stop to see it every time I'm downtown. I take pictures with him. Everyone loves to pose with The Fonz. It makes people smile, it's simple, and it's free. Plus it's on... More

It is fun to see along the river walk. Like it or not, the Fonze, Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley are part of Milwaukee As is Beer! Worth a walk and picture.
