Around 2,500 people "enjoyed" of the frozen water around 41 degrees as part of a tradition of an organization called Polar Bear Club. This club has done this since 1,903 in Coney Island, NY

Alrededor de 2,500 personas "disfrutaron" del agua a una temperatura de 4 grados centígrados como una costumbre que viene haciendo una organización llamada Polar Bear Club desde 1,903 en Coney Island, NY.

Como podrán ver en las fotos de todos, había gente de todas las nacionalidades y colores, como clara representación de la diversidad en la Capital del Mundo ... mujeres en embarazo, niños, celebraron un matrimonio, desnudos, de todo un poco ... ah y en un comienzo habíamos mas fotógrafos que bañistas.
