Corndogs in Financial District?

Anyone have any recommendations for corn dogs in the financial district? I have a corndog craving...

    1. I think there's a really cheap hot dog near Century 21. Maybe even with a soda. Not sure if it's good, I don't eat red meat (aren't hot dogs mystery meat?). There must be street carts near Wall Street with them.

          Thanks for educating me, wingman. The link led me to believe they were.

      1. Enigma, I think you're stuck until one of the street fairs comes to the area - I think the next one is around July 4th. There used to be an Arthur Treachers across from Liberty Plaza but I think it has since closed.

          The corndog is not really a very popular - or available - item in NYC. As evidenced above, some folks here don't even know what one is (hot dog, covered in corn batter, deep fried, served on a stick), which certainly wouldn't be true back in my native Midwest. I think wingman is right - if you really have a craving you should seek out a street fair (there's sure to be one somewhere in Manhattan every summer weekend) and hunt down a carny cart selling corn dogs.

            Living in Battery Park and being an occasional corn-dog craver myself, I have to tell you that you are out of luck as this point in time. I can't even think of anywhere in Manhattan, except the street fairs as mentioned above, that has them. The last time I wanted one, it required a bike ride to Nathan's on Coney - which made it (or them, actually) taste that much better.

            Growing up, we always called corn dogs hot-dogs-on-a-stick.

        2. Someone else had a craving for a corn dog in March and had better luck with their responses:

          Good luck!
