Substitute for hanger steak?

The recipe I'm using specifically calls for hanger steak which I believe is not widely available as there's only one hanger steak per cow. What's so special about hanger steak anyway? Is it very different from say, sirloin? Any suggestions on what part of the beef to substitute it with? Thanks!

The terrus major or flat iron steak may be another option. The hanger steak is just a lower cost cut that has as good enough flavor as the middle meats (strips, bottom rnd, ribeye) same as the flat iron. Lifter meat is a wonderful cut too.

According to Wiki, it's another name for hanger steak.
