The home of  Brooklyn’s most famous cheesecake is not for sale after all.

The owner of Junior’s Restaurant has decided not to sell the building that houses the restaurant.

Alan Rosen says he has had a change of heart and has taken the two-story building in downtown Brooklyn off the market.

He tells The New York Times the building is Junior’s identity. He says it’s the place where he came on his first dates and where his family spent most of their waking hours.

News for those who live, work and play in Brooklyn and beyond

The property at the corner of Flatbush and DeKalb avenues went on the market in February. Offers to buy and build an apartment tower poured in. They included a $45 million offer but it didn’t accommodate a ground-floor Junior’s.

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