Charles Robert Feltman, great-grandson of Feltmans Restaurant founder and hot dog inventor Charles Feltman, tells the family history and describes  what Coney Island was like in the 1940s. Founded in the 1870s, Feltmans was once the world's largest restaurant, stretching from Surf Avenue to the Ocean. "Bob" Feltman also reveals why the family is no longer in the hot dog business.

The Coney Island History Project inducted Charles Feltman (1841-1910) into the Coney Island Hall of Fame in 2005.
