This may be credible seeing how it's from Village Voice:

#7-I'm sorry, but broccoli should be illegal as a major sandwich ingredient. Fine vegetable, delicious in Chinese food, doesn't belong between bread.

I think this is an old list...I know at least two of the places are no longer around.

Thanks Dale, I'd say it is credible. It's mostly new school but it does have Katz's, Mile High, Parm & Red Hook LP. I think what I miss most here in Virginia is being able to get a great, good or passable sandwich in nearly every neighborhood. Here it is mostly chain sub & sandwich shops or a grocery with a deli counter. Going to the local Giant grocery I asked the deli counter if they 'make' sandwiches. They said 'yes' but then pointed to a display case and said 'they are over there'. All were pre made. UHG!
Now this article is about heroes and is 13 years old but it was my awakening. Sorry if I posted the link before.
http://www.nytimes.com/2003/10/15/dining/hey-po-boy-meet-some-real-heroes.html
Some places are gone, like the Corona Pork store, but others remain. I have not tried them all, only some; my favorites are Leo's and Lioni's.  Ed, who wrote the article, says ignore the 'signs and silly names' at Lioni's but in reality, their menu has 150+ cold heroes made with a vast selection of ingredients. That menu is framed and mounted on our kitchen wall here in Virginia.

Broccoli features prominently on one of the best sandwiches I have had in my life - the roast pork italian at Tony Lukes in Philadelphia

That's not broccoli. It's broccoli rabe. Different animal.

From The Tony Luke's website:
 
Tony Luke's Roast Pork Italian
The sandwich that put Tony Luke’s on the map! Tony Luke’s roast pork is slow roasted with a secret blend of herbs and spices. The result is juicy, garlicky pork which is sliced thin, topped with au jus, sautéed broccoli rabe or spinach, sharp provolone and piled high on freshly baked bread.

That list is missing a great local sandwich...bacon, egg & cheese on a NYC hard roll.

With a list like this it proves all the Italian and Jewish people have left NYC. I wouldn't say this looks to be the top 10 sandwiches in NYC. It may be 10 of the better sandwiches among 100's. I would bypass most of these on my way to Defonte's Sandwich Shop. I bet Billyboy would give a thumbs up for the Brisket sandwich at Katz's deli. I'll be in NYC and I'm thinking of stopping at Red Hook for a Lobster Roll......When you take the tradition out of NYC I wonder what the heck your left with.

You would actually eat a lobster salad on a roll? You have been gone from Connecticut too long. We're going to have to take away your nutmegs.

Nope, they're still there, however the grandkids and great grandkids of the immigrants prefer something new and fresh. One of my friend's wives put it perfectly "we loved our grandparents but we don't want to be our grandparents"
Tradition changes over time, nothing is ever set in stone. 50 years from now, New Yorkers will be longing for that traditional "grown up grilled cheese"  and "pork belly banh mi's"

I'll skip the "grown up grilled cheese" and Pork belly manh mi's.  Not everybody wants "new and fresh".  I loved my great-grandmother's, my grandmother's and my mother's  cooking best of all.

Oh, that's OK then. The lobster salad on a roll is what's shown in the list. But kill the lemon, the paprika and the scallions. They don't belong on a Connecticut lobster roll. Just hot buttered lobster.

And I'll have my pastrami and corned beef on white wonder bread, slathered in mayo.

Not too long ago (1965) I was staying at a Holiday Inn (On The Elk) in Charleston, West Virginia while waiting to get into my new apartment. I went into the motel restaurant for lunch and saw "Kosher Corned Beef Sandwich" on the menu. I hadn't had one in a while so I ordered it. Shortly thereafter the waitress brought my food. There it was: corned beef, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise on white bread.

Not too long ago? Ha! That was the year I was born!
 
Did they also  have a hamburger bun with a hole poked through the middle masquerading as a bagel?

Nope. But there was a Jewish delicatessen in town back then. I remember going back about 20 years ago and it was gone. It probably moved to New York because there's such a demand there.
