To honor its 60th anniversary, Junior's in Brooklyn is offering a slice of its famous cheesecake for just $.60.

Normally, a slice costs $5.95.

When Junior's opened its doors 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.
