Eat 65¢ cheesecake to celebrate 65 years of Junior's

Rest assured there won't be any dry sponge cake with lifeless sprinkles at this birthday bash. Tomorrow, iconic New York mainstay Junior's Restaurant will fete its 65th anniversary by doling out 65-cent slices of its world-famous cheesecake—a confection so good it nabbed the top spot in our list of best cheesecakes in NYC. The pocket-friendly deal will be valid only at the Brooklyn storefront, from 6:30am to midnight. 

Adored by everyone from President Obama to P. Diddy, the decadent treats have been hand-baked since the restaurant's inception in 1950, using only humble Philadelphia cream cheese in the filling. Just last year, fans caught wind that the current owner Alan Rosen, grandson of the founder Harry Rosen, had been propositioned by developers to sell the original space, a lucrative deal that Rosen thankfully rejected. So for now, Junior's is still standing and you can stuff your face with a whole lot of cheesecake, for not a lot of cash. Win.
