New York staple Junior's is selling its flagship Brooklyn location.

The beloved eatery will move from the corner of Flatbush and DeKalb Avenue to make way for a new condo building, but the restaurant's owners say the move is temporary.

They say that they're confident they can return after construction and satisfy sweet tooths where they've been a fixture since 1950.

People NY1 spoke with said that even a temporary move would be a sad one.

"This is world-famous Junior's. It needs to be here," said one disappointed customer. "This is a place that employs people. It's a legacy. It's been here for years and years and years. I'd rather have this."

"Of course I'm going to miss it, because most of the time, if I have to invite somebody very important, I come here to show the trademark of Brooklyn," said another customer.

"I'm sad to see them go, but I want to see them coming back shortly, very soon," said another customer.

The owners plan to build a second permanent Brooklyn location and possibly another temporary spot in the neighborhood during construction.
