Staten Island White Castle permanently closes without explanation
Effective December 24th, 2023, White Castle has permanently closed its operations at its Mariners Harbor location on Staten Island, New York. This development was recently confirmed by an employee at the establishment (situated at 2238 Forest Ave.) and further corroborated by flyers distributed within the vicinity. Since this advancement, the site has also been listed as closed on its Google profile. The location had been successfully operating for a number of years which makes the closure even more shocking.
While the specific reasons for the closure remain undisclosed, it marks the departure of a familiar culinary landmark for the Mariners Harbor community. At the same time, the Hylan Blvd location is still operating as usual which is the nearest location for fans of the fast food outlet.
White Castle is an American fast-food chain that has been around since 1921, making it one of the world’s first fast-food hamburger chains. With over 345 locations across 13 states, it has become a beloved institution in the Midwest and New York metropolitan area. White Castle is known for its small, square hamburgers, also known as sliders, which are served on a bed of onions and are topped with pickles and ketchup. The menu also features a range of other items, such as chicken wings, fish sliders, and french fries.
