Veteran Vendor Done Hawking Hot Dogs

Angelo Pipas is hanging up his tongs.

Who's Angelo Pipas, you ask?

He's the guy who's been serving hot dogs near the MTV building in Times Square for the last 41 years.

Pipas said he's "just tired" of working (foot)-long days, according to Tuesday's New York Post, and wants to take some down time, maybe head home to his native Greece with his longtime wife Theodora.

"Now my kids are grown, so I can relax more," he told the Post.

His daughter is an attorney and his son teaches history, and a cousin will be taking over the cart, the Post reported.
