Beach fees in NJ get charged for three reasons:

(1) Dune maintenance
(2) Lifeguards
(3) Keeping the riff-raff out

I'm happy to pay the fees.

The argument about "subsidizing rich people's homes" is silly.

Not I.

Used to work at NU Evanston Illinois on the lake front. On nice days a run and swim at lunch. Swimming from the rocks, no sand no beach.

On occasion some would express extreme displeasure. I would just continue on my run, a bit quicker.

Zero fees for zero service.

WELL! I know when I’M not wanted! You can just keep your silly old beach! Besides, it’s probably got sand fleas!
