Whether January 1 brings us more unseasonably warm weather or another snowpocalypse, we know one thing for sure—the Atlantic Ocean will be frigid. Wanna take a dip? Join scores of other nutcases today by taking the Polar Bear Club New Year’s Day Swim, an annual plunge into the icy waters off the shore of Coney Island. The chill is supposed to provide health benefits, like lowering blood pressure, improving complexion, and even stimulating the libido. And then there’s the health of your ego, which will have bragging rights to boost itself for the rest of the year.
