NEW YORK, N.Y. - Hundreds of swimmers rang in 2013 with a plunge into the icy sea off New York City, an area struggling to recover from Superstorm Sandy two months ago.
Some members of the Ice Breakers and the Coney Island Polar Bear clubs dressed in costumes for the annual New Year's Day splash.
People screamed at the shock of the cold water.
This year, Polar Bear club members and others were raising money for Sandy relief efforts. The area was badly flooded by the late October storm.
