"Dragged through the garden," an epithet for the Chicago-style hot dog, takes note of toppings that customarily include onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, pickles, and sport peppers. This faded sign, seen from across Bruckner Blvd., marks what seems to have been an early attempt to transplant the Chicago dog to New York. In this case, it didn't take root.
