Edith Storch

Memories of growing up on West 36th Street in Coney Island's West End in the 1930s

Edith Storch, 90, grew up in the West End of Coney Island at 2762 West 36th Street near Canal Avenue. She shares memories of her immigrant parents, shops and street vendors, a nickelodeon on the pier at West 37th Street on the Bay, and Coney Island Library when it was at Mermaid and Stillwell. After growing up outside the gate, she moved to Sea Gate, where she still lives and swims daily.
