Offbeat Eats Comes to George's Coney Island

Coney Island dogs, in particular, have always fascinated me since (a) they seem to mostly be clustered in areas that arent's New York's Coney Island (although there are many "Coney Islands". coney is just a name for "rabbit"), and (b) there is something oddly compelling about both the hot dog itself and the places that serve it.
