Coney Island Polar Bears plunge into chilly Atlantic

The Coney Island Polar Bears plunged into the chilly waters of the Atlantic Ocean on Sunday.



The organization meets for a dip in the water every Sunday at 1 p.m. from the beginning of November until the end of April at Coney Island Beach.



They also meet on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day.



The club was founded by Bernarr MacFadden in 1903.
