Rough Ride for Arcades at Coney Island

Rough Ride for Arcades at Coney Island Park -

As Coney Island rebuilds after Sandy, the operators of its amusement parks face a specific challenge: to refurbish beloved but aniquated games. Park owners have to reach out to special tinkerers to repair fan favorites like Grandma"s Predictions.

Grandma now sits in a kind of intensive-care ward for century-old knickknacks in the Westchester County workshop of Bob Yorburg, 57, who specializes in carnival repair, and who recently revamped the carousel organ for the Big Apple Circus at Lincoln Center
