They'll plunge into the Atlantic on New Year's Day.
CONEY ISLAND, Brooklyn — On New Year’s Day thousands showed up at Coney Island, strip down to their bathing suits and dash into the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Are they crazy?
It’s the Coney Island Polar Bear Club’s 114th New Year’s Day plunge. A lot of people don’t know that the annual event raises money for charity!
The plunge happened at 1 p.m., at the boardwalk at Stillwell Avenue.
