STONE HARBOR, N.J. — I was surprised to hear the rumor that Henny’s, now in its 77th summer, may not see a 78th. Apparently, the land is for sale and a potential buyer has been found. The new buyer would knock the venerable Stone Harbor institution down and replace it with a hotel.
When I was a kid Henny’s had honey-dipped fried chicken that I thought was out of this world. When I started going back to Avalon/Stone Harbor, I was kind of disappointed they did not have it. Henny’s has been Yurasko favorite for most of those 77 years, it will be sad to see it go if this rumor is accurate.
