White Tower in Toledo? Sun, 10/3/10 4:27 AM (permalink)
Does anyone know if the vintage White Tower was ever re-opened in Toledo? I saw a lot of newspaper articles about it being saved from the wrecking ball and supposedly relocated, but never anything more. Any news and especially an address would be great!

    Amazing! I grew up eating at the White Tower at the corner of College Street and Crown Street in New Haven.
     
    EDIT:
     
    I'm now not sure about this. I called the phone number and got an answer from someone saying "Thank you for calling White Tower," but when I expressed pleasure to know the place still existed the response was one of confusion. "Why wouldn't we exist?" I then checked further and learned this might not be the same White Tower.

      Yes, I'm not so sure either - I had seen both  these articles before. They both suggest the building was moved. But if you go to Google street views (which I know are not so current), I certainly don't see the distinctive building at that address.
