The Coney Island is more than a local restaurant. The Coney represents Detroit on a greater scale. The Greek brothers who founded the Coney Island came to Detroit seeking opportunity and made something out of nothing. With their signature item, the Coney dog, a hotdog that was more than a hotdog, and unique to Detroit, they became legendary. Today it is a Detroit staple, a place to eat and spend time in the inner city for quick meals, hanging with friends, after the club, or to just read the paper. Every neighborhood in Detroit has a Coney Island and you could no more have one than the other. In a similar fashion, the culture, the community, and the opportunity to prosper is what this title represents.
