Ape on the Roof

A previous tip for this attraction stated the ape was no longer on the roof. Evidently he liked his perch up there and has returned! I snapped a photo of the ape on November 19th, 2022.

Ape on a Roof

The ape statue is no longer on top of the roof. There is a new sign with just a picture of an ape.

Ape on a Roof

A smiling gorilla with an upraised arm stands on the roof of Pennsylvania Aluminum, a home remodeling company. I noticed it as I was driving from Nescopeck to Bloomsburg -- it was certainly an unexpected sight.
