Re:Nathan's Coney Island?
<< I've known this since the days all the Wetson's were converted to Nathan's (late 70's, maybe?) I really don't know if any of them are still operating as a Nathan's. Maybe someone else on this forum knows.>>
My memory is a little fuzzy on this, but the former Mitchell's Drive In on 86th Street and 7th Avenue in Brooklyn has been a Nathan's (awful from the start, BTW, haven't been in years) since around 1975. I *think* it was a Wetson's after Mitchell's closed and before Nathan's took over. It's history I thought I'd never forget, but now just don't recall for sure if it was ever a Wetson's.
Couldn't find anything definitive on the web, just lots of memories of Mitchell's, a definate 50's/60s hotrod hangout in the midst of urban Brooklyn.
