The 119 Street Dip

In the early morning of January 1, a group of 60 to 70 people took a dip to start off the New Year. The annual 119 Street Dip, which has been a tradition since January 2001, began with a march towards the beach. Tom Pulkoski, the organizer of the event, began the countdown to "dip" ten seconds before noon and participants made a mad dash into the freezing water of Rockaway Beach.

Pictured here are the participants of the 119 Street Dip, before the dip. Pictured here are the participants of the 119 Street Dip, before the dip. In they go and out they come.
