Pinback Button. Black and white button from 1972 when the "Save The Cyclone" campaign was in full swing against those who would tear it down. The city bought The Cyclone in 1969 and by 1972 planned on demolishing it to expand the Aquarium.......Opponents of the plan organized a "Save the Cyclone" campaign to contest the proposed demolition of the coaster. This created a conflict between the Aquarium, which supported the Cyclone's demolition, and the Coney Island Chamber of Commerce, which opposed it.
