Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update March 22, 2018 #RealEstate

A 1,624 SQUARE-FOOT BILLBOARD ad featuring Cape May County will appear in Time Square in New York City.  Cape May County tourism ads will run three times an hour from 6am to 2am, and will be visible to hundreds of thousands of people transiting Times Square daily.   Purchased at a deep discount due to the struggles of retailer Toys-R-Us, Cape May County will pay $10,950 of the $16,900 total cost; Atlantic County will pay for the remainder of the purchase.  The normal cost would be $88,500. 

GHOST TRACKS:  Century-old railroad tracks appeared at Higbee Beach on Delaware Bay.  The old rail line was uncovered by recent storm activity, which shifted beach sand exposing the so-called “ghost tracks.”  The rail line was owned by the Atlantic City Railroad and was used to serve a sand mining plant adjacent to the beach.  After the plant closed decades ago the rails were eventually covered by beach sand.   Storms uncovered a portion of the tracks a few years ago, drawing crowds to the area to view them.  This past week curious visitors walked north from Sunset Beach to catch a glimpse of the newly exposed section of track.

NOR’EASTER NUMBER 4:  As of this writing, the fourth nor’easter of the season is making its way up the coast.  While heavy rain and minor to moderate coastal flooding may occur, it’s the chance of accumulating snow that’s the hot topic.  March usually brings with it signs of spring, but chilly temperatures, northeasterly winds, rain, and snow feel like anything but spring!

THINK SUMMER!  Imagine warm sunshine and gentle seabreezes, as ocean waves lap at your feet!  Plan ahead and put a little summer into your life!  Check out my Vacation Guide to get started!
