Join me on Facebook for the very latest on Avalon & Stone Harbor! Avalon/Stone Harbor Update

Weekly News 5/24/2018

THE UNOFFICIAL BEGINNING OF SUMMER is finally upon us! After a long winter who isn't ready to kick off the summer season? The Island is ready for an influx of visitors: shops and restaurants are open, the beaches are open, and a weekend of fun awaits! On Monday, May 28th both Avalon and Stone Harbor will hold parades and Memorial Day observances. Whether you're walking the beach or barbequing with friends, take a moment to remember the veterans that have made it all possible.
MARKET STATS: Sales ticked up in the month of April, although they're down from a year ago, due to a shrinking inventory of listings. The number of active listings is down 17% from a year ago. For a detailed update on the market see the latest Long & Foster Market Minute (PDF).

ABOUT 30,000 CUBIC YARDS of sand will have been placed on Avalon's north-end beaches by the time a sand backpassing project concludes this week. Sand from a sandbar just south of 32nd Street will be transported to north-end beaches to replenish them after erosion occurred during late winter nor'easters. (No dry beach sand had to be used for this project.) This is the Borough's sixth sand backpassing project, which have proven to be an effective way to rebuild beaches in between more expensive hydraulic dredging projects.
THEY'RE FIFTY POUNDS LIGHTER! Stone Harbor Beach Patrol is trying out a new aluminum version of its traditional lifeguard stands. The lighter weight will make it easier on lifeguards, who adjust the position of their stands several times on a typical shift due to tide changes. In addition to the weight savings, the new stands are believed to be more durable than wooden versions.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT, check out Avalon's expanded bike path. Newly striped lanes on borough streets mark the path--check it out when you're in town, or have a look at this map:

FLOUNDER SEASON also kicks off this Friday, May 25th. For bait, tackle, and fishing advice visit Smuggler's Cove in Stone Harbor, or check with Avalon Hodge Podge or Moran's Dockside in Avalon. If you'd like to rent your own boat and take the kids fishing, Smuggler's Cove has boats available for daily rental.
