The Beach vs. The Beaches

CN Tower

After weeks of voting, 2,200 residents have chosen to adopt the name The Beach over The Beaches.  The final score was 58% to 42% in favour of the singular title.

Personally, I don't have a preference.  I've always known it as The Beaches but I can easily adapt.  Even Old New York was once New Amsterdam.  Why they changed it I can't say.  People just liked it better that way.

Truth be known, I rarely visit the east-end lakeshore neighbourhood.  I've written about my west Toronto bias before.  If I can do it west of Yonge, I won't do it east of Yonge.

WoY rulez.
