Junior's - An Institution in Brooklyn

On the VERY day that both an article in the New York Times and a story on television appeared about this Brooklyn institution..... we brought home a slice of strawberry cheesecake from the Grand Central location..... 

According to the reporters, the owner of Junior's (second generation) turned down $45 million for their Brooklyn location..... Condo builders wanted to buy him and his family out and he refused! 
The television segment that aired showed him hugging employees who had worked at the place for over 30 years..... maybe we can make it to the REAL location before we leave the area.....in the meantime.. great cheesecake!
