Since 1973, Gray's Papaya has been a New York favorite on the West Side. With two locations, both spots merit an obligatory visit, especially if you're broke. So what if it is just a hot dog joint? Founder Paul Gray (formerly from Papaya King), has fed thousands of New Yorkers, in addition to many celebrities and tourists. The special is two juicy dogs served with your choice of onions, kraut, mustard, ketchup and a foamy papaya drink for some of the lowest prices around. The place is standing room only, but then again these dogs are meant to be eaten on-the-go.
I heard this place was great, but once I got there it was a different story. The service was terrible, and I was surprised by the mediocre food. A great place for a value, but not a place to get a good meal and a cashier that knows about the english language and the american dollar.
Very popular hot dog stand that I have always thought was slightly scary. People crowd in for hot dogs and this strange papaya juice concoction. Is it mass insanity? I think it is just craving for hot dogs. Eat at your own risk.

I was a vegetarian for 25 years. The night of the 2004 election I was wandering the streets of Manhattan and I was in Times Square when it was announced the Bush had won re-election. I was disgusted and deeply disturbed by this news. I found myself heading uptown and before long was standing at 72nd st. in front of Gray's Papaya. Somehow all moral constructs rang false at that moment, and I impulsively decided to eat a hot dog, expecting that I would probably get sick, giving physical manifestation to the psychic nausea I was feeling. I went in, ordered a hot dog, slathered it with mustard, and took a bite. And then another bite. All of a sudden I felt this surge of energy I hadn't felt in years. I didn't feel sick at all--to the contrary, I found myself leaping up staircases, running down the street, lifting heavy objects with ease. Gray's Papaya changed my life (but not my party affiliation.) Remember to vote this Tuesday!
