The hot dog is something typical of New York. One man says that it is like the Empire State Building or the Brooklyn Bridge. Those places are also very typical of New York.

One brand of hot dogs is 100 years old. The brand celebrates its birthday. People use the hot dogs to make the longest line of hot dogs. They use 1,916 buns.

This big hot dog is 292 metres long. This is 34 metres longer than the second longest hot dog. The second longest hot dog is made in Tokyo.

Difficult words: brand (a type of product which is made by a business – Nike, Apple etc.), bun (a piece of bread around a sausage).
