I recognized the Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue subway station, which was shown yesterday on television, as it was in very close proximity to the annual July 4th, hot dog eating contest. I have not been to that station, since the 1960's. I read that there was a multi-million dollar renovation, which was completed on that station, not too long ago. Even before the renovation, I was always amazed how several subway lines would converge on the Coney Island station, and that there were free transfers to all of the various lines. I believe that there are now elevator options for passengers, as the steps were very steep. Also, that station is located not far from the MTA subway repair facility. I always wanted to see how the subway trains were repaired, inside that facility. However, I don't think that there are tours of that facility, which are open to the public. Regarding the actual hot dog eating contest, there should be a maximum age limit for participants, since health problems could arise from participants continuously gouging themselves with so many hot dogs.
