Toby Deligdish, 92, grew up in the Borough Park neighborhood of Brooklyn. She shares memories of going to Coney Island at around age 10, when her family rented a room in a home for the summer, and returning as a teenager with friends from school. Toby recalls going to Bushman Baths with her mother and riding the bumper cars, Parachute Jump, and Wonder Wheel with friends.
