DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — ALAN ROSEN,  the third-generation owner of Downtown Brooklyn’s iconic JUNIOR’S RESTAURANT, is vetting the idea of becoming NYC’s next mayor, reports 1010 WINS News. The famous Brooklyn diner, which opened in Brooklyn in 1950 and specializes in its beloved cheesecakes and deli-style sandwiches, is popular among Brooklyn’s political leadership, holding an annual breakfast leading up to Election Day each year. “My business experience and philosophy on my business would make me the hospitality mayor, the mayor for all New Yorkers,” Rosen, 55, told 1010 WINS in an interview. He is first vetting New Yorkers’ firm support, identifying as a “moderate Republican” who finds his passions in public safety and quality of life. Rosen told the all-news station he would support increased police funding and other measures to help his fellow New Yorkers feel safer.

Rosen told 1010 WINS that he has “no issues with Eric Adams” but believes the current mayor, formerly Brooklyn Borough President, has mishandled the migrant crisis and homelessness, among other issues.
