The Cyclone roller coaster at Coney Island, where the park celebrated its 142nd year in 1971. “Where else can you go on the subway and see more than 45 degrees of sky?” asked Lucy F. Becker, 24, who was being serenaded on the harmonica to “Get Back,” by her companion Norman Trabulus. Elsewhere on that day in April, a Scottish expatriate took his young children for a stroll, noting that Coney reminded him of the Portobello Fair amusement park in Edinburgh. “The only difference,” he remarked, “is that we called cotton candy fairy floss.” Photo: Barton Silverman/The New York Times
