Junior’s, one of those brands that’s synonymous with Brooklyn culture, is celebrating 65 years as the purveyor of one of New York’s most beloved slices of cheesecake. For their 65th anniversary on November 3, Junior’s will be offering cheesecake slices all day for only 65 cents (normally $6.95).
“This is a thank you to all of our great customers who have supported us since my grandfather started Junior's 65 years ago,” owner Alan Rosen told The Daily News. “I am honored to still be serving Brooklynites and all New Yorkers. It is truly my family's life's work.”
Last year, Junior’s made headlines when they went public with their refusal to sell the restaurant after three generations of existing as a family-owned establishment. Junior’s was commended for sticking to their guns and saying, “Let them eat cheesecake!” Earlier this year, Junior’s announced that they had moved their cheesecake factory headquarters to New Jersey, a decision that certainly ruffled some old Brooklynites’ feathers, but we imagine that the promise of 65-cent cheesecake will make them temporarily forget the move across the river.
You can get your price-slashed cheesecake slice at the original Junior’s location on Flatbush Avenue between 6:30 a.m. and midnight.
