Coney Island Fact!

To properly prepare you for the fun tomorrow, The Big Adventure presents some fascinating Coney Island facts: The hot dog was introduced to America in 1867 on Coney Island by German immigrant  Charles Feltman. With business booming, in 1915 Feltman hired a young man, Nathan Handwerker, as a roll slicer and part-time delivery boy. By 1916 Nathan opened his own competing hot dog stand. The rest as they say is History in a Bun. Okay, no one actually says that...
