'24 Hour Hot Dog Stand', Uptown, New York City

Newer Older

I was about to leave the Apple Store after shooting it and swung around to see the hot dog stand in full action. I wonder if these people ever sleep? I don't much care for hot dogs in nyc. Coming from the midwest I'm a big sauer kraut and yellow mustard fan. Hot dogs in nyc are a bit different. Here's some interesting facts about hot dogs and how they're different depending on the geographic location if you're interested.

New Yorkers - it will come served with steamed onions and a pale, deli-style spicy yellow mustard.

Chicago - antithesis to NYC dogs, Chicago dogs are layered with yellow mustard, dark green relish, chopped raw onion, tomato slices and topped with a dash of celery salt and served in a poppy seed bun.

The South (Georgia/Carolinas) - The 'slaw dog' hot dog is served with chili and cole slaw, mustard, and onions. Most vendors use coleslaw, but some places use a vinegar-based variation called BBQ slaw.

Ohio - A cheese coney is a hot dog topped with Cincinnati chili, mustard, diced onion, and shredded mild cheddar cheese. (amazing by the way)

Kansas/Missouri - Sauerkraut and melted Swiss cheese.

Who would have thought that a hot dog could be made in so many ways. Ha.

    I like the use of light - almost makes it look like a staged drama :-)

    Nice shot. The mustard they put on these hot dogs suck. I like a spicy brown mustard. But if you can find a stand with good onions I'm there.
