The Coney Island Polar Bear Club is the oldest winter bathing organization in the United States. They swim in the Atlantic Ocean at Coney Island every Sunday from November through April. Since 1903, they have been hosting a public New Year’s Day Plunge for all brave souls to welcome the New Year. The Polar Bear Club welcomes everyone to their annual plunge where loyal bears, cubs and guests can plunge into the frigid cold Atlantic Ocean. The event is free, but donations are encouraged to help The Polar Bear Club in Coney Island. If you want to be a part of an iconic tradition, step out of your winter coats and furry boots and join the Polar Bear Club members. If it’s too cold for a plunge in the Atlantic this New Year’s Day, you can still be a part of Coney Island history. Consider a contribution to the Polar Bear Club of Coney Island as they seek to raise $80,000 for the continued growth and programming of our vibrant and diverse community. This year’s plunge will raise funds to create a more sustainable and cleaner environment, programming for Coney Island youth as well as improve quality of life for residents.
We hope to see you on January 1, 2020 at 1pm at the Boardwalk & Stillwell Avenue.
