Anybody have cheesecake faves of their own that I'm missing, and should compare it to.

I prefer a bakery.

Has anyone tried cheesecake at Something Sweet, my beloved local Austrian pastry place on 1st Av. and 11 St.? I've had other stuff there, and it's great, but I don't remember trying cheesecake. Everything's so rich there, but of course! It's Viennese, after all! Lovely proprietress, too. If you come close to closing time, she's apt to give you two of whatever for the price of one, or/and throw in something she wants you to try.
Have a look at my website, fluteperformer.com!

I love the ricotta cheesecake at Monte's Venetian Room, near the oh so lovely Gowanus Canal - it's on Carroll St., between Nevins - 3rd Ave. It's the oldest Italian restaurant in Brookly, or something like that?

You'd take the R train to Union St., and then it's only 4 blocks away. A quick ride.

Monte's can be seen in the opening sequences of the movie, Men of Respect (1991), where John Turturro shoots the diners.

I don't know how much is just nostalgia. For four years I exited and entered that Dekalb Ave. Subway stop. A few years later I had an apartment on Hoyt and Pacific st, and used to go for Pastrami on twin onion rolls for lunch or Kippers and Eggs on Sunday morn. The cheescake and the resto became part of the fabric of my then existence. You know how these things go.
Leshkos (pierogis) and the B&H (blintz's) in the East Village are two more of those places also.
I've lately taken to dragging people around with me to sample the food of my memories.
