I first tasted Junior's cheesecake in 1966 when I was driving a cab and a fare took me there, eulogizing the cheesecake all the way. The fare, a generous guy, tipped me well, then asked me to park the cab and be his guest for a pice of the cheesecake. I accepted and took him on to JFK afterwards. It was an excellent fare. the big benefit was discovering Junior's. Years later I was living in Bahrain, making frequent trips to NYC. An Iraqi friend asked me to bring back a Junior's cake, which I did, three of them. Her family, one of the very few jewish families in Bahrain at the time, devoured all three of them in a couple of hours. Those two memories do not alter my tastebuds. Nobody can equal Junior's. Touristy now, yes. Overrated, no, that cannot really be done. Now let the attacks, claims and counterclaims begin. I dare anybody who has not lived in New York for at least ten years to sustain an opinion. Canarsie should also be allowed a view, and Dovster (there is nobody at Junior's interesting to him, I think) may have an opinion. All the New Yorkers have already well defended views I am sure.
