Looking For Matzo

Some years ago my late mom, may she rest in peace, told me of a a specific bakery in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, that made the best fresh baked matzo in NYC. I believe they only make it for Passover, they may even be a strictly for-Passover-bakery. My memory is very foggy on this subject. Does anyone have any idea if this bakery still exists and where it's located? And if it's closed, where else would you suggest? It doesn't matter to me which sect makes it. As long as it's good, and as long as they would sell it to outsiders.
