Best Wings In NYC?

I am trying to figure out where to find the best wings in NYC. I have yet to try any that can stand up to my personal favorites (Dean's original at the Forge in Lanesboro, MA), but I refuse to believe that there is a food that someone in New York hasn't perfected. Please advise me.

      1. Blondie's is my local sportsbar and my archnemesis. I find the wings greasy and heatless, insults to wingdom, and yet they regularly come up as one of the Top 2 wings in the city. My vote goes for 1849: meaty man-sized wings with a firm exterior and sheer joy inside.

        1. The wings at Nolita House are great. Not greasy or fatty.

            I would also add Buffalo Wild Wings in the Atlantic Mall - only if you get them the hottest possible. Otherwise, they're just ok.

              grub street did not have much of a sample size. my statistics prof would have a fit over the winner garnering 5 votes. Good resource though.
