The Cyclone




The Cyclone





Coney Island, Brooklyn


Landmarks Preservation Commission July 12, 1988; Designation List 206 LP-1636
THE CYCLONE, 834 Surf Avenue at West 10th Street, Brooklyn. Built 1927.
DESCRIPTION AND ANALYSIS
Summary
Descended from the ice slides enjoyed in eighteenth-century Russia, through the many changes incorporated by French and American inventors, the Cyclone has been one of our country's premier roller coasters since its construction in 1927. Designed by engineer Vernon Keenan and built by noted amusement ride inventor Harry C. Baker for Jack and Irving Rosenthal, the Cyclone belongs to an increasingly rare group of wood-tr3ck coasters; modern building codes make it irreplaceable. The design cf its twister-type circuit and the enormous weight of the cars allow the trains to travel on their own momentum after being carried up to the first plunge by mechanical means. Now part of Astroland amusement park, the Cyclone is not only a well-recognized feature of Coney Island, where the first "modern" coaster was built in 1884, but, sadly, is the only roller coasrer still operating there.

The president of the American Coaster Enthusiasts sums up the ride's continued popularity:

The world-famous Cyclone has earned a place in history through its reputation as the world's best roller coaster, through the enjoyment and pleasure it has afforded countless generations of families and friends, through its starring role in many films, literature, art, photography, the news. The Cyclone is a classic

beauty and we need to have it recognized as an
irreplaceable part of history and Americana.1

The History of Conev Island

Coney Island has played a part in the history of New York since the first days of European exploration, when Henry Hudson docked his ship, the Half Moon, off its coast in 1609. Lady Deborah Moody and forty followers settled Gravesend, the area north of Coney Island, in 1643; she bought the island itself from the Canarsie Indians in 1654. Not until 1824 did the Gravesend and Coney Island Road and Bridge Company build a shell road from the thriving center of Gravesend to what is now West 8th Street on the island. Along with the commencement of steamer ship service from New York in 1847, this improved access allowed about a half dozen small hotels to spring up by the 1860s. During this period many famous Americans rusticated there: Washington Irving, Herman Melville, Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, and Walt Whitman.

But the nature of vacationing at Coney Island changed quickly during the 1870s, when several railroad companies began service from Brooklyn; the completion of F.L. Olmsted's Ocean Parkway, a designated New York City Scenic Landmark, also provided a comfortable route for carriages. Grand hotels and restaurants accommodated the mostly well-to-do visitors, who came to enjoy not only the ocean and cool sea breezes but also the amusements which were transforming Coney into the most famous family park among its American counterparts. A festive atmosphere was ensured by the transferral to Coney Island of structures from the dismantled Centennial Exposition which had been held in Philadelphia in 1876.

Coney Island developed into "America's first and orobably still most symbolic commitment to mechanized leisure. The island increasingly became the site for technologically advanced structures such as the balloon hangar, elephant-shaped hotel and observatory (built in 1882, it became an unofficial symbol of American amusement parks), and the Iron Pier (1878) which housed many amusements. Mechanically-driven rides were pioneered at Coney; most of these rides succeeded because they combined socially acceptable thrills with undertones of sexual intimacy."* Indeed, Coney Island, which earned the sobriquet "Sodom by the Sea," was "the only place in the United States that Sigmund Freud said interested him."^ As early as 1883, Coney's name was identified with entertainment, proven by the renaming of a midwestern park as "Ohio Grove, The Coney Island of the West."^

Between 1880 and 1910 its three large and successful racetracks gave Coney Island the reputation of horseracing capital of the country. In addition to gamblers, such features attracted confidence men, roughnecks, and prostitutes. Coney's

many activities could be viewed from above in the three-hundred-foot Iron Tower (originally the Sawyer Tower at the 1876 Exposition). This most notorious phase of Coney's history ended around the turn of the century after many hotels burned down in fires during the 1890s and racetrack betting was outlawed by the state in 1910.

A movement led by George C. Tilyou to transform Coney's corrupt image introduced the idea of the enclosed amusement park to American recreation. By 1894 there were dozens of separately owned rides; but the following year Capt. Paul Boyton opened Sea Lion Park, a group of rides and attractions one enjoyed after paying an admission fee at the gate. Duri

Waiting for Julian Schnabel. Who is tardy but that's OK because I hate getting up early, was also late, and frankly can't fathom why any artist would schedule a press conference before noon. We're all there to attend a "sneak peek' offered by the AGO in Toronto- an exclusive advance glance of their upcoming exhibition, "Julian Schnabel: Art and Film," and an opportunity to meet the famed American artist and filmmaker in person.

Journalists warn each other not to ask any questions which could set him off, as he will undoubtedly leave, thus ruining it for everyone. No criticisms or "stupid comments" , only fawning permitted. No-one wants to become the next "Robert Hughes", a well-known critic, whom the mere mention of his name to Schnabel will spark the afore mentioned crisis, or another "Jake Chapman", who was infamously challenged to a fistfight following disrespectful comments about the artist. It is actually appalling to watch the majority of press comply, all smiles and glazed eyes fixed on Schnabel, effecting looks of studied intensity as they lap up every proffered word. All it takes to command such adulation is super star status, and Schnabel has managed to achieve this successfully on two fronts- first, Art in the 80s, then as an award winning film director for the past 15 years. I suspect that by now he finds all the deference annoying as well as flattering, and one can understand why he chooses his close friends amongst the similarly rich and famous. The man is known to be enormously wealthy, enormously egotistical, and creates works of art on an increasingly enormous scale in an enormous pink palace he personally designed and decorated. The 170-foot-tall Palazzo Chupi was placed atop an industrial building, much to the initial consternation of his West Village neighbours in NYC. It is magnificent, if you like all things Venetian and Gaudi-esque, and I confess I do!

With the 45 minute delay, the anticipation in the room mounts. The buzz includes such lofty musings as- What will he wear? In spite of his wealth, the corpulent, middle-aged Schnabel (59) now eschews the elegant yet edgy clothing of his youth for the comfort of pajamas (worn in public like Hefner) and sarongs. A startling effect nicely offset with the inevitable beautiful woman dangling off an arm. Men shake their heads- how does a guy dress like that and yet score such babes, they ask, as if the answer isn't glaringly obvious. Money, position and power win the girl every time- or at least, some girls, with lots of lookers to choose from in that pool, and evidently intelligent ones too. Fashion TV was there, presumably for the art, but when Schnabel eventually meandered in they weren't disappointed. He was a study in contrived yet casual disarray - buttoned up plaid shirt, mismatched plaid shorts and drooping 2 toned socks which came up too high over his low-rise "Vans" sneakers. You couldn't help but think- Oh, come on... you have money, and probably a stylist- you didn't just throw this on, you chose this outfit for us! But it worked. We're all talking about it, unlike the more conventional suits worn by the 2 men who introduced him, AGO board member Jay Smith, and David Moos, AGO curator of modern and contemporary art. A catalogue, Julian Schnabel: Art and Film, has been published in conjunction with the exhibition. David Moos wrote the introduction and will also conduct a dialogue with Schnabel about the relationship between painting and film in his practice.

After speeches which established Julian Schnabel's position as “one of the most famous artists in the world today,” (Jay Smith), and emphasized the importance film has always played in Schnabel's work, long before he ventured into that particular medium himself (David Moos), we were taken on a tour of the show, which was still in the process of being mounted. We were escorted by Schnabel, who fielded cameras graciously and avoided questions about any intended meanings deftly, and even rea
