White Castle Closes
It was closed.
Far Rockaway residents reported around Christmas that the restaurant, in operation for more than 30 years, was shut down. Cardboard covered the inside windows and large signs announced “This Location Is Closed. Please visit our other location(s)” in Queens and Nassau.
A spokesperson at White Castle’s district office confirmed the closure was indeed permanent. They explained their long running lease was up and that they would be looking to now relocate in a busier area.
No definite word was available on when or where a new outlet would open.
