We were in NY on a bus tour, and our drive said he was going to take to have the best hot dog NYC has to offer. When we pulled up in front of this place, I wasn't sure he was right. It really is...More

Can't go wrong with the recession special - two simple but really good hot dogs, and a refreshing drink. Good, quick service and a tasty snack, and cheap as chips. Would go regularly if I was nearer!

2 for 5 dollars! What else u can picky for? Very efficient to have gray’s papaya hotdog here and get some soda drink. Well, I cannot figure out why papaya juice in states tastes so different with Asia’s flavor.

Gray's Papaya offers perhaps the best price/quality breakfast. So if you are either in a hurry, just want a good breakfast or are looking for great value for money, this is the way to go!

網路及雜誌上推薦的熱狗店,價格親民甚至比路上熱狗攤車更為便宜。口味上來講應該是有加肉醬的chili hotdog, 麵包普普,熱狗本身在水準上,並不像想像會噴汁,可嘗試看看加cheese sauce 的,當地人都點extra cheese sauce 🤟

Always make a point to stop for a couple of 'dogs when I'm in NYC. The "recession special" is now $5.95 (once, when I was younger, it was $2.00), but it's still a steal of a deal.

Have been here several times before and just had to make time for a quick bite. Hot dogs are sold all over NYC but these are special - a class of their own. Tastes better than anything else, soft buns and tasty sausages. Many toppings...More

They have great prices for a quick bite to eat. We got a hot dog and a smoothie, and it was awesome! 2 hotdogs for $3 and we shared the smoothie.

We really like to eat a couple of hot dogs at Gray's Papaya on the upper westside. In my opinion the best hot dog in NYC. We always get the recession special which includes two hotdogs and a papaya drink. The price is ridiculously cheap...More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
