The original Island was settled by the Dutch in 1639 and named Conyne Eylandt.In 1690,it appeared on English maps as Conney Isle.Finally in 1733,It was standardised as Coney Island.

In Austria the Weiner/frankfurter was invented in 1805.German Immigrant Charles Feltman who was a butcher,opened the first hot dog stand in Coney Island in 1867.
