Devoted customers of iconic Junior's Restaurant — and its owner
Alan Rosen — were smiling big Tuesday because the famed cheesecake
purveyor will not be torn down and replaced with an apartment tower.
Rosen, the third-generation owner of the famed eatery that has
commanded the corner of Flatbush Avenue Extension and DeKalb Avenue
since 1950, has decided not to sell the property for a whopping $45
million. He had gotten that offer because he'd had the building on the
sale market since February.
“I feel great,” Rosen told the Brooklyn Eagle Tuesday. “I feel relieved.
“I'm going to sleep well tonight. I had many sleepless nights — trust me.”
