Merge[edit]

Merging in Revere Beach, Revere seems uncontroversial to me but I thought I'd throw it in as I was passing (working on Revere). (Emperor 19:32, 22 February 2007 (UTC))


"Deteriorate?" Self censorship[edit]

I'm in SF. I came here from a Globe story in which a great working class cultural institution too mysteriously goes belly up; "deteriorates", as the website coyly says. Wikipedia has to be more than a PR handout if it's to win back the respect it has been losing. What happened? Did the GI bill make it possible for the middle class to move to the suburbs? Where is Revere Beach in relation to downtown? It is legal, by the way, to discuss demographic changes when they're backed by statistics.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Profhum (talkcontribs)

By all means, feel free to make any such changes you feel would improve the article.--Loodog 17:36, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

First public beach[edit]

The article says the beach, "founded in 1895, is the first public beach in the country". What does this mean exactly? The reference is a dead link, so no help there. Prior to 1895, were Americans not allowed on beaches????? Clearly not so, since this beach was used by the public before then as the article says. Later, it says "the first to be set aside and governed by a public body for the enjoyment of the common people". So, do we mean "publically owned" or "publically managed" rather than simply "public"? Some clarification would help, but to describe it as "the first public beach" is just nonsense. Emeraude (talk) 14:56, 1 December 2013 (UTC)
