Walter’s Hot Dog Stand in Mamaroneck, celebrating 90 years of those unmistakable sliced-in-half-and fried (or is it griddled?)hot dogs
(with a side of curly fries) may soon be a National and a State Historic Landmark; it is already a County landmark. The nomination (which you can read below–with some fascinating history– says, "In addition to the noteriety of its hot dogs, Walter’s Hot Dog Stand is an amazing example of roadside architecture."
For 90 years locals travelling the world have sent postcards back to Walter’s from every corner of the globe. It is managed by Peter and Jeanne Fellows, who lecture, write and teach about about psychic arts.
The New York Board for Historic Preservation said today it will recommend that Walter’s be entered into the Registries. Here is the official nomination document. (definitely worth reading.)
