To honor its 60th anniversary, Junior's in Brooklyn is offering a slice of its famous cheesecake for free Friday - well, almost free.

If you only want the cheesecake, it will cost you 60 cents, which is quite a bargain considering its price is normally $5.99. However, if you buy a meal, you get one slice free.

When Junior's opened its doors on Flatbush Avenue in 1950, the cheesecake went for 35 cents a slice.

From that modestly-priced beginning, Junior's now sells about 5,000 cheesecakes a week.
