    Brooklyn, Gauteng Province, South Africa
    Brooklyn is a pleasant suburb of Pretoria. Unless you want to visit someone here, you can skip this town which is named after its far more famous and interesting American counterpart. And, do not try to order cheesecake here. Instead, hold your horses and your longing for New York Style Cheesecake until you get to good old Brooklyn, New York, USA. Once you are here, go to Junior's Restaurant! Cheesecake afficionados will argue about whether the best New York Style Cheesecake is at Lindy's on Broadway near Carnegie Hall or at Junior's on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn. Fans are as adamant as the fans of the Yankees and the Dodgers (when the latter was a Brooklyn team! Remember when?). Since there are no playoffs or a world series for cheesecake bakers, you will have to be the judge. Fortunately, for visitors who cannot make it to Brooklyn, Junior's now has two Manhattan locations at Times Square and at Grand Central Station. However, I warn you, there is something about the ambiance of the old Brooklyn restaurant that just seems to seep into evey bite at the Flatbush location. This place oozes atmosphere; on that score they have Lindy's beat by a mile. Try both, Lindy's and Junior's; linger over each slice long enough to drink two cups of coffee; most importantly: don't try to sample both on the same day...you could OD! Seriously! Also, DO NOT sully the simple, creamy complexity of these wondrous creations by adding anything such as fresh fruit. If you HAVE to, come back later and mess with the original. Oh, at Junior's they claim the recipe is closely guarded and only one baker oversees the production of these beauties...fair warning, I guess for those who would like to try to recreated a masterpiece.
