White Castle Location In Queens Closes After More Than 80 Years

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- A fast food restaurant in Queens that's been in operation for more than 80 years is shutting its doors.

The White Castle on Northern Boulevard in Jackson Heights opened in 1935.

The company says due to rising costs and increasing uncertainty during the pandemic, it's permanently closing Wednesday.

The restaurant says remaining Queens locations will stay open and all team members have been offered other jobs within the company.
