Located to the right of Cyclone in this picture is the parking lot of the New York Aquarium.  In the early 1970s, the Aquarium's planned expansion threatened to tear down the famous roller coaster.  After a successful "Save the Cyclone" campaign and five years of the ride sitting dormant, the coaster reopened in 1975.
