I believe that is also the site that talks about Lindy (whose actual  
name was Linderman, apparently, like in "Heroes") as being a master  
marketer, widely publicizing his cheesecake recipe early on in a bid  
to dethrone another well-known deli owner (Reuben's, also famous for  
what would later be called New York style cheesecake), and apparently  
it worked. Although as I recall, there were Reuben's delis in NY  
after the last (both real and cloned) Lindy's closed.

IIRC, the primary difference was that Reuben's used sour cream in  
their recipe to Lindy's fresh cream, and the pastry was different.
