Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update September 27th 2018 #RealEstate #NJ

NEED AN UPDATE ON AVALON WEATHER?  You can check current weather conditions in Avalon in an instant, thanks to a new weather station installed 65 feet above ground on the radio tower adjacent to Avalon’s public safety building.  In addition to providing real-time wind speed, direction, temperature and humidity, historical data will be maintained as well.  You can access the weather station via a link on Avalon’s website, or by clicking here:

RECYCLE COACH APP:  The Borough of Stone Harbor is participating in a new app designed to provide information on recycling and proper waste disposal.  The mobile app allows users to set reminders for collections, or search a database for detailed disposal instructions specific to the area.  The Recycle Coach app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play.

BEACH SWEEPS will be held in dozens of locations along the New Jersey coastline in October.  Avalon will conduct a beach sweep on October 20th (volunteers should meet at Community Hall at 30th Street at 8am.)  Stone Harbor will conduct a beach sweep the same day, scheduled for 9am at the 95th Street beach.  Beach Sweeps are planned for Cape May, North Wildwood, and Sea Isle City as well.  Visit for more details or to register for a Beach Sweep.

PORTUGUESE MAN O’WAR SIGHTINGS:  From time to time ocean currents and winds conspire to bring the Portuguese Man O’War to local beaches.  They were spotted last week on Stone Harbor beaches after winds from Florence pushed offshore water in our direction.  The Man O’War looks like a jellyfish but has a distinct sail-like flap on top, and long tentacles underneath.  They should be avoided whether in the water or washed up on the beach, as contact can result in a painful sting.

PLAN AHEAD: AVALON’S SEAFOOD FESTIVAL takes place on Columbus Day Weekend.  On both Saturday & Sunday, from 10am to 5pm, you’ll find local seafood vendors along with beer & wine, kids activities, music, face painting, and more.  It all takes place at 30th Street & the beach in Avalon.  Mark your calendar!
