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 think these guys have the best chicken wings in the city...


            144 W. 19th St., New York, NY 10011
            nr. Seventh Ave.

          2. Just today in Grub Street they posted this:

            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.
