Seems pretty convenient/foreshadowing having something named after Ralph down there. Almost like it would fit right in with a new stadium less than a mile away...

Is that Ralph's childhood bicycle on top of the building?

I imagine there is a reserved parking spot that is always occupied by a Ford taurus.

His dad was too cheap to buy him a bike like that.

Actually, Mr. Wilson wasn't behind this at all.  He was a cheapskate with no loyalty to WNY, of course.  He and his cronies had to be strong armed into having anything to do with this.

 

Mark Poloncarz was actually the one who spearheaded and funded the whole thing.  He will be humbly releasing these details in a book sequel scheduled for release in Summer 2023: right before his next political campaign.

It was located in East Aurora but they moved it to Canalside. The plans languished for years until his foundation founded it a couple of tears ago.

Strong is massive.  This one looks small.  Could hold a decent GI Joe collection...maybe.

What about the big stadium they took his name off of? Is that some type of foreshadowing too?
