Iconic 96-year-old NY restaurant ready to rebuild after Sandy

You’ve probably heard of this iconic part of Coney Island, but did you know it hasn’t closed in 96 years? Nathan’s Famous Hotdogs has been open continuously 365 days a year since it opened in 1916, but has shuttered its doors due to the storm surge from Hurricane Sandy.

A statement from Nathan’s corporate office said they have already begun the process of rebuilding. “We will open before the summer season. We will enjoy the same menu and the same famous experience,” Nathan’s said.

Good news! They’re already planning the next Fourth of July eating contest.
