Episode 3A: Grace Keros

In 1917, Gust Keros came to the US from Greece. After passing through Ellis Island and finding no jobs in New York, he came to Detroit. But upon arriving, unable to find work, he started a little pushcart, selling hot dogs and popcorn, shining shoes and cleaning hats. Today, on that same corner, nearly 100 years later, American Coney Island is owned and operated by his granddaughter, Grace Keros, who joins us today.
