The Brooklyn Eagle reports on how the Fulton Ferry Landing area has become a tourist destination. The piece includesand interview with the owner of the hot dog stand in a parking lot guy:
Brooklyn Eagle: Fulton Ferry Landing…: One person who has seen the change, Richard Mauro, moved to DUMBO 40 years ago, and has owned the aforementioned Landing parking lot for four years, and opened the hot-dog stand this year. The recipes are all his own, but reflect different locations – the “Chicago Dog,” for example, has peppers, tomatoes, onions and celery salt; the “El Paso Texas Dog” has homemade chile. He often adds new variations – for example, the “Dubai Dog” with Middle-Eastern seasoning.
Not only is business doing well, he said, he plans to stay open through November.
