Brooklyn Eagle - Cheesecake lovers rejoice: Iconic Junior's will stay intact

Excerpt -

Say cheese!

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.”
