NEW YORK — The home of Brooklyn's most famous cheesecake is up for sale.

The owners of Junior's Restaurant have put the property at the corner of Flatbush and DeKalb avenues on the market.

The chairman of the firm handling the listing says the site would be suited to condominiums with a retail base. The property was officially listed Thursday.

Bob Knakal, of Massey Knakal, says part of any deal would be Junior's returning to the site, perhaps as a long-term lease in the retail space.

He says that Junior's would relocate to an alternate site in Brooklyn during any construction.

Junior's is a family-owned business now in its third generation and opened its Brooklyn site in 1950.
