Gray’s Papaya

Gray’s Papaya

402 Sixth Ave at 8th St
Manhattan, NY 10011


An unassuming hot-dog joint that happens to be open 24/7—and offers some of the winningest wieners around—Gray’s Papaya has earned its own distinctive place in New York City culinary lore, appearing in many TV shows and movies. And at less than $5 for two dogs and a drink, the “Recession Special” offers one of the City’s most generous food-to-cash ratios.
