Junior’s to mark 65th anniversary with 65 cent cheesecake

Juniors has been at the corner of Flatbush and Dekalb Aves. since 1950.

It’s Junior’s birthday, but you get the cake.

The Brooklyn restaurant will sell its internationally known cheesecake for just 65 cents per slice on Tuesday to mark the landmark’s 65th anniversary.

Owner Alan Rosen called it a “thank you to all of our great customers who have supported us since my grandfather started Junior’s 65 years ago.”

“I am honored to still be serving Brooklynites and all New Yorkers,” he added in a statement. “It is truly my family’s life’s work.”

And it’s a life’s work that will continue, despite massive development in Downtown Brooklyn. Last year, Rosen said he rejected a $ 45 million deal to sell the restaurant’s squat building to developers who have ravenously consumed most of the space around Junior’s.

Rosen was hailed for the move, but he was pilloried earlier this year when he revealed that all of his cheesecakes are now made exclusively in New Jersey.

That move was designed to help with the company’s large mail-order business. The company reportedly sells 1 million cheesecakes per year — the minority of them from its home base at the corner of Flatbush and Dekalb Aves., where clientele includes presidents and A-listers such as Jay Z.

Junior’s 65th Anniversary, 386 Flatbush Ave. Ext. at Dekalb Ave. in Brooklyn, Tuesday, 6:30 a.m. to midnight. Cheesecake offer only on take-out slices or a slice to dine-in with purchase of an entree.
