'Polar Bears' Take The Plunge
More than 200 would-be "polar bears" showed up on New Year's Day to brave the cold waters of Beach 146 Street and Rockaway Beach. The event went off without a hitch despite a driving, cold rain and chilly surf. While many had the good sense to dive in and come right out, others chose to stay in and do a little bodysurfing.
