2020 got off to a chilly start in Coney Island on a brisk, windy day with temperatures in the upper 30s and low 40s, but that didn't deter hundreds from participating in the 116th annual New Years Day Polar Bear Plunge.
Now in its 37th year, the Mermaid Parade is a celebration of the season, creativity, nautical mythology, fertility, and letting ones freak flag fly, and around 3000 people took part this year, including 12 marching bands.
The crowd went nuts from the time the collective took the stage, rushing the barriers, and maintained that energy throughout the night as Wu-Tang Clan delivered a set heavy on material from their landmark debut.
