My review on TripAdvisor:

The new outpost for Gray’s Papaya opened to a very welcoming return from the reviews online. It has been a nice addition to the restaurants that have been opening around the Port Authority lately. The prices have also been a pleasure as well.

Gray’s Papaya’s hot dogs

They are having a recession special of one hot dog with a drink for $3.99 and two hot dogs with a drink for $5.99, which is a good deal and the hot dogs are now $1.75 which is better than any of the hot dog concession offer and the hot dogs are much better quality. They are cooked on the grill and have a nice snap when you bite into them. They have a nice spicy flavor to them that is accented by the mustard.

Their grill is almost mouthwatering

In the morning, they also serve breakfast sandwiches that run for $3.45 (add coffee for $4.45) and that is a nice deal for a bacon, egg and cheese on a roll.

Since its opening, it has been a very busy restaurant for the neighborhood and is open late night.  There is no place to sit down but there are a few cocktail tables to eat at. If you have a late night in the city and are not in the mood for pizza, Gray’s Hot Dog recession special can’t be beat.

My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston. I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
