inside nathans standEveryone's hard at work to serve the 4th of July crowds. Yesterday was my first trip to Coney Island since I moved to NYC.  Checked out the hot dog eating contest and afterwards, was still able to think about having food from Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Stand.  How can I leave Coney Island without trying these hot dogs?  I tried the corndog, and shared a hot dog and some bacon cheese fries (heart attack and artery clogger waiting to happen).  It was all delicious!  Love the mustard they use!  They have clearly been doing something right since they opened in 1916.  Classic Coney Island.
