STONE HARBOR, N.J. (CBS) – Whether you’re looking to stroll the shops, catch a movie, or grab something to eat, there is definitely plenty to do in downtown Stone Harbor. The minute you drive into Stone Harbor, you arrive at 96th Street.

“It’s amazing to think the island itself is just three blocks wide and on this one block is where all the action is, day and night,” said Stone Harbor Chamber of Commerce Marnie Lengle.

Lengle says 96th Street is filled with many places visitors have come to count on.

“We’re very lucky that we have businesses that have been here for 10, 20, and 30 years beyond,” Lengle said.

And of course, there’s Harbor Square Theatre, which has been around since 1949. It was recently renovated and feels new again.
