08-09-2016 15:00

One man said that Nathan’s Hot Dogs is like the Empire State Building or the Brooklyn Bridge. They are all something very typical of the New York City.

New York’s famous hot dogs have been celebrating 100 years of history and in no ordinary fashion. People made a world record attempt for the longest continuous line of hot dogs by laying out Nathan’s Hot dogs.

They laid out 1,916 buns in total, which was stretching to an impressive 292 meters. People set the previous record in Tokyo by 34 metres.

Difficult words: attempt (a try), continuous (forming one thing, connected), stretch (exist over an area), impressive (awesome).
