If you live in this neighborhood, than it’s become abundantly clear that M Street Beach is THE place to be in the summertime.
This photo below was taken on June 5th during a heatwave. Nothing like being shoulder to shoulder with beachgoers during 90+ degree weather, right?
This angle is nothing compared to to the main photo taken by Michael Dwyer/Associated press used in a Wall Street Journal article about COVID-19 and health experts expecting local flare-ups (Special thank you to David H. for sharing with us!)
In the description of the photo in the WSJ, it describes the beach as a Massachusetts beach – but we know. It’s M Street Beach. Six pack abs, red Solo cups, thongs-a-plenty, Day Blvd. in the background. It’s M Street Beach alright. It’s basically stock photography for a “beach you’d like to avoid” or “outdoor venue crowded beyond belief”.
Is this the first “national article” with M Street Beach included? According to a quick google search, yes it is. But locally, M Street Beach has been the topic of lots and lots of news stories:
