Jackie Gleason, Audrey Meadows, Art Carney and Joyce Randolph - in costume as Ralph and Alice Kramden and Ed and Trixie Norton, respectively - pose inside and around New York City Omnibus #2969 (GM TDH-4509, serial #1119, built Nov-Dec 1950) for a series of publicity photos for the upcoming "Classic 39" season of The Honeymooners. The bus - based out of 100th Street depot and designated Rt. 2 - Madison Avenue - is parked on the 56th Street side on the southwest corner of 56th Street and Seventh Avenue, on the same block as - and at the north end of - the Park Sheraton Hotel where Gleason lived and had his HQ at the time. Some pics, shown uncropped, show the MONY building farther away, facing further west-northwest (WNW). Here is one pose from this session:



But the most iconic photo from this session, in its uncropped state, can be found below:
