The clientele of famed hot dog stand Gray's Papaya most likely don't give a damn that its Upper West Side location sports a C grade in its window from the Health Department, mostly for flies and vermin. But for those that do, they can no longer frequent the other location on 8th Avenue and 37th Street. It quietly closed voer the weekend.
A worker in the West Village location tells Eater that it was a rent issue and that it doesn't make sense to continue with a landlord who's charging more than anyone else in the area. They plan to reopen soon in one of three possible new Midtown locations.
