My search for the best hot dogs in New York continues….

I knew I had to go out to Nathan’s sooner or later on this hot dog journey but, the truth is, I was sort of dreading it. I’d need to ride the train for a good hour (no matter where I was in Manhattan) each way. And then when I got to Coney Island (the very last stop), I’d have to deal with crowds, heat, lines, etc. And while the thought of hitting this place up on July 4th (when they host their annual hot dog eating competition) sounded very American and festive, I’m not a glutton for punishment.

I usually go to Coney Island once a year just for the novelty, but I have never even remotely considered getting in line at the chaotic hot room they call Nathan’s. The one time I had a hot dog on Coney Island, I went to the more manageable boardwalk location. The masses stop immediately at the large signs and flashing lights just outside the subway station – at the original location which has been there since 1916 when Nathan Handwerker left his job at Feltman’s to surpass the popularity of his former employer.
