A Nathan's Education

2011_06_nathansprogram.jpg20 college students from Beijing are participating in a work-abroad program this summer at Nathan's Hot Dogs down in Coney Island. The hardest part of the job: understanding Brooklynese. While the Times was there one worker broke down and cried when she didn't understand a woman's question about onions. Said the women later: "Oh, I made her cry — I feel terrible...But if you’re going to work in Brooklyn, you got to toughen up." [City Room]
