This is our friendly neighborhood White Castle–yes, just like the movie Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle. Some people think of White Castle as a Jersey thing, but it got its start in Wichita, Kansas, and there are restaurants in 11 states (and the rest of the country, except for 10 states, sells White Castle products out of the freezers of various retail stores).
This particular location apparently needed an update. As you can see from the photos, over the course of 6 months or so (I didn’t get stopped at that light during the daytime for several months after the renovations were finished), they changed the crenellation pattern, replaced the real tower with a fake one (…I don’t understand that), and completely changed the placement of the windows.
Plus new awnings.
Oh MAN, everyone will be coming in for White Castle Sliders now that the awnings are striped and the tower is only a façade.
