Corinne describes visiting Coney Island in the 1940's as a girl with her family and even taking the train with other children to spend the day. She rode the Steeplechase horses and even the Parachute Jump, which she first tried out at the 1939 World's Fair when she was eleven years old. She used to spend her last nickel on something fun and then find a police officer to ask for train fare to get home!
