Nathan's Famous, NYC
1310 Surf Avenue, Brooklyn, NY.
Built in 1916, photographed in 2003.
Nathan’s Famous was founded by a Polish immigrant, Nathan Handwerker, and his is truly an authentic
“only in America story.” He started his business in 1916 with a small hot dog stand in Coney Island, New
York. He sold hot dogs that were manufactured based on a recipe developed by his wife, Ida.
Today, Nathan's reaches millions of customers through traditional and captive market restaurant
operations, a branded product program introduced throughout the food service industry and packaged
products sold in supermarkets.
