NORTH VS SOUTH BEACHES-Tia Johnson
There are many beaches in Chicago on the south side and north side that were closed throughout the summer of 2012. Many were closed because of the unsanitary conditions that caused the water to be dirty. Some south side beaches that were closed include Rainbow Beach, Ashe Beach, Jackson Park and many more. Some north side beaches that were closed include Fullerton Beach, 25th/26th Street Beaches, Hollywood beach, and Montrose beach.
North side beaches in Chicago have been proving cleaner than many of the south side beaches. North side beaches have a more high class image than south side beaches, which have an image of being more unsanitary and unsafe. The south side beaches have an image of serving those who come from a lower class background.
Some south side beaches that are considered neighborhood beaches are the ones that are more likely to be dirty than the north side neighborhood beaches. One big reason why some beaches are not as clean as other beaches is because there are more people going to those special beaches which cause the beaches to become less clean. the clearner beaches are sevring less poeple.
