  • You can't have too much artisanal pizza while in Brooklyn, so he'd have to go to Best Pizza in Williamsburg. (Photo:
  • And then, finally, to Paulie Gee's in Greenpoint. (Photo:
  • But what did Obama actually do? He went to Junior's. Amateur move, Mr. President. (Photo:

Obama came to Brooklyn Saturday, and it was not simply to try the small-batch roasted coffee. He visited to speak with students at P-TECH. He reportedly told students, “When I was living here, Brooklyn was cool, but not this cool.”

The President visited Junior’s for two of their famous cheesecakes afterwards with Bill de Blasio.
