Polar Bears Still Doing Their Thing

On the first snowfall of the season - a little more than an inch fell in Central Park - 60 members of the Coney Island Polar Bear Club trudged down the icy Boardwalk to take the plunge into the chilly waters off Eighth St.
With all the changes going on in Coney Island, it's good to see that this tradition remains intact. The club has been bearing the cold waters since 1903!
