JS Online reports that “‘The Fonz’ soon might be part of our downtown [Milwaukee] landscape, immortalized in a life-size bronze sculpture that city tourism leaders hope would be a stopping point for visitors.”
From the article:
The Fonz, of course, is Arthur “Fonzie” Fonzarelli, the character from the long-running TV show “Happy Days,” set in a nostalgic version of Milwaukee, circa the late 1950s and early 1960s. Visit Milwaukee, a non-profit group that promotes the city as a tourism and convention destination, is leading an effort to raise $85,000 to commission the statue, which likely would be in the plaza south of E. Wisconsin Ave. and west of N. Water St., near the Chase Plaza office tower.
Aaay – I love it.
