Mayor Michael Bloomberg takes a scooping lesson from Ralph’s Italian Ice worker Gianna Rivera, 16, of Castleton Corners before serving it up at the window, as part of a campaign stop on Staten Island.
Marisa Tomei and Bill Burr film a scene at the Port Richmond Ralph’s for the 2020 film King of Staten Island directed by Judd Apatow and starring Pete Davidson.

Wu-Tang Clan turns Ralph’s Italian Ices in Port Richmond into a burger joint and films a segment for their Hulu production, “Wu-Tan Clan: An American Saga.”
