NEW YORK (CNN/NEWS 12 THE BRONX) – At nearly 140 years old, this Coney Island hot dog is in pretty good shape.
It was recently found encased in ice underneath the boardwalk’s famous Feltman’s Kitchen.
The restaurant was formerly owned by the inventor of the Coney Island hot dog.
“Coney Island holds a lot of history of Brooklyn and New York, and for them to find a hot dog is just something to add onto it,” said Quincy Cook.
“That’s unbelieveable, finding hot dogs that are 140 years old. That’s crazy. To me, that’s crazy,” said Antonio Velez.
Officials at the Coney Island History Project say the hot dog still had it’s original restaurant receipt attached to it.
The hot dog and receipt will be on Coney Island starting March 28th.
