|Here is the original Nathan's Famous hot dog stand. Home to the International Hot Dog Eating contest which takes place on the 4th of July every year. Participants from the world over take part in this contest. In 2002, Takeru Kobayashi of Japan, doubled the world record in hot dog eating by downing an astounding 50 hot dogs and buns in 12 minutes.||One of
the entries onto the boardwalk of Coney Island. The boardwalk is 3.5 miles
long. Along this stretch are many fast food shops, amusement rides for the
whole family and games of chance.
Beyond it of course is the beach.
|Located by Steeplechase Park within Coney Island very close to the beach is the parachute ride. Originally a part of the 1939-40 World's Fair this amusement ride was quite a treat until it was closed down in the early 1960's.||As of this writing
in Spring 2003, it looks like the ride will be opened to the public once
again following a renovation project of over $5 million. As you can see
in the photos above, the work is being carried out.
Yours truly looks forward to enjoying this ride!
