March 2017, Wendy Clark

This month I’d like to introduce you to photographer Wendy Clark and her amazing photographs, And while you’re at it please look at my book “The Coney Island Book of the Dead, An Illustrated Novel” by clicking on the Amazon link in the upper right.

 

These photographs are of this year’s Coney Island Polar Bear Club New Year’s Day plunge. Why would anyone in New York jump into the Atlantic Ocean on January 1, you might wonder. I think it’s for the adrenaline rush and the Coney Island spirit. Invigorating, some people call it. This year it was relatively warm, nearly fifty degrees, but the water was closer to thirty-seven.

 

Our brave photographer testing the water.

    And I thought swimming in Bay 4 in Brighton Beach was cold IN JULY.
    Great and clear pictures. Sheilas book about Coney Island was well written and brought 60 year old memories to life. Chuck S.
