Christmas trees have been placed on Avalon’s beach at 30th Street, and on Stone Harbor’s beach at 95th Street. Visitors are invited to stop by and help decorate the trees. Photos courtesy of the Borough of Avalon (left) and the Stone Harbor Property Owner’s Association webcam (right).
WHAT A WEEKEND! A little rain on Friday didn’t stop the fun! Avalon’s Festive Friday and Snowfest Saturday plus Stone Harbor’s Frosty Island Holiday celebration and parade all took place over the weekend. It’s always fun to see such great crowds on the island in the offseason!
STONE HARBOR joined Avalon in revealing a new holiday beach tag design, and both Avalon and Stone Harbor tags are now available for online purchase. Whether you’re decorating a tree or stuffing a stocking, holiday tags are the perfect choice. They don’t need to be exchanged next summer—they’re good all season long on the beach!

AN EIGHT-FOOT SECTION of railroad track was uncovered at the Avalon firehouse expansion project. The piece of steel rail harkens back to Avalon’s history from many decades ago, when steam trains ran daily along what is now Dune Drive.
CONSTRUCTION OF OUR NEW OFFICE CONTINUES, and we’re looking forward to getting into the new building. In the meantime, we’ll be occupying a new temporary office space at 2307 Dune Drive in Avalon, beginning December 1st. Our Stone Harbor office continues to operate as normal. As always, I’m ready to help with your real estate needs. If you’re planning a visit to the island, please call or email me ahead of time so we can schedule a convenient time to meet!
