The form of park that came about to end this search was the amusement park, and the most well known of these amusement parks was Coney Island. The major reason this type of park was so successful was because of all it did for society. One thing it did was raise post office restrictions on the mailing of picture postcards since so many people wanted to mail family and friends to show them how much fun they were having. Coney Island was also like a safe-haven for immigrants. Here everyone was kind and there were lots of things to be done so it was a good way for the new residences of the country to experience America. This boost in immigration also gave the country a greater ethnic diversity. The fact the park had such a liberating social setting also brought about changes in fashion, and sexual expression. The rides provided the right scenes for couples to express their love for each other in public more often, and as a result this public display of affection became more accepted. The beaches also gave society a more accepting ideology to the thought of more revealing clothing.

In 1971, the Chicago Bears began to play in Soldier Field. The founder of the Chicago Bears, George Halas, never thought Soldier Field would be the permanent field for the Bears. Later in the 1970’s, George Halas announced the team would look into building a stadium in Arlington Heights. “Chicago Mayor Richard Daley stated the team would need to change their name to the ‘Arlington Heights Bears,’ should they move to the suburbs” (Roy Taylor).

As highlighted by William Jordy in his book American Building and their architects: first, the placing of the central courtyard in a library hindered communication between the different sections of the library. Second, although the courted building allowed for wider stacking systems (a maximum width of 40 feet) and windows, McKim could not leverage this advantage, since smaller windows needed to be placed around the stacks as a “precaution against large scale conflagration.” Third, the random placement of ancillary rooms for special collection, the lecture hall, toilets stacking system, and lockers to fit into the main building program, appear to have little consideration for their utility
