Looks like hundreds of people showed up for the Polar Bear Club's annual New Year's Day plunge in Coney Island. Great photos can be found in Flickr's ConeyIsland stream, and in photosets by YouCanSleepWhenYou'reDead, HollyP, and LittleBill (who shot the picture above.) The Post reports that the air temperature was in the low 30s-- anyone have a first-hand account of freezing your balls/ta-tas off?
