They're symbols of a bygone era in New York, these three ancient restaurants of Coney Island, in Brooklyn, NY. Nathan's hot dogs and fries (see the review), Totonno's great New York pizza, and Gargiulo's round-up-the-family Italian cuisine (see the review) are all beloved classics, and all were hit hard by Sandy. Jeff Gordinier, writing for the New York Times, explores what these places mean to New Yorkers, as the restaurants struggle to recover from the storm.

Wow! has posted a list of NYC restaurants that are still closed due to Sandy. Here's the link:

Many of my favorites including the River Cafe, Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, Bridge Cafe, Steve's Authentic Key Lime Pies and Capsouto Freres are on the list. DUMBO, Red Hook and the South Street Seaport area (where I live) were hit pretty hard.
