Toms River: A desolate, quiet and calm downtown area as photographed on Christmas Day. Our downtown area here in Toms River is a really nice couple of blocks. We truly hope this district can be revitalized into a live-play-shop type of mixed use development. Downtown has been neglected for too long, and there’s so much more economic potential here. Oh, and someone needs to open a recreational marijuana dispensary downtown. It’s only fair since the town changed the rules to permit the brewery! ????
