JEMAIL: Toner, Mike (MC1972) nails the White Castle down


> MFACEBOOK: Ever a White Castle by Manhattan College? 2014-Jul-06

Dear f. John,

Yes, there was a White Castle on the corner where Manhattan College Parkway intersects with Broadway just north of the subway station. Looking at google maps pictures of the current intersection, I remember it as south of the Burger King, where there is currently an island of vegetation/trees. Definitely in that intersection area and not as far north as BK. This is long before alma mater’s dorm was there.

A quick internet search found a reference to it in someone’s memoir of the
VCP area in the early sixties…

Ray Lodato

FJohn Reinke,

There was a White Castle at the foot of Manhattan College Parkway in the ’60s. My father used to take me there when I’d come to campus with him. It was gone by the time I went to Alma Mater (I think it was a Burger King by then).

[JR: I never knew that. But I suspected if it was anywhere, it would be where Burger King is. I’d prefer White Castle. Laugh. Thanks.]

McCall, Tom [MC1972]

Wasn’t it a White Tower? The White Castle was on Fordham Road.
