Yes. I worked in Elmsford for 10 years and the deli called them wedges. Can’t believe I forgot that one.

Mostly called subs around here, but one place calls them Baguettes. Name of the place is Baguette De France.

Yup -- I grew up northwest of there, Ulster County, and we called them subs or heroes, but I spent a year in Westchester and had to learn to call it a wedge. I never quite figured out where that name came from, except that if you cut across it at and angle there's a definite wedge shape. Or maybe it's describing what the sandwich is doing to your mouth as you try to cram it in.

May 5th is National Hoagie Day. November 4th is National Submarine Sandwich Day. And someone decided that we needed a National Eat A Hoagie Day on September 14th and Submarine-Hoagie-Grinder Day on October 9th.
