on the 1st of january every year, many crazies people gather in my favorite brooklyn neighb to be involed in the coney island polar bear club. i was tempted to do it, mostly for the sweatshirt.  2009 was my introductory experience of witnessing this migration first hand.  double socks, long underwear, warm coat, hat, gloves: let’s go!
