Swimming in Brighton Beach…It’s delicious!

I caught up with Anna on a cold, crisp, beautiful fall day. She rides her bike to the beach and jumps into the water, often into November.

The NY Times has more about this cold weather swimming phenomenon, which is apparently prevalent in this part of Brooklyn.

Stay tuned for a post about my search for an interesting person.  It wasn’t easy!

10 Notes

This interview comes from my week in Stuyvesant Town where I met Bernie, who has lived there since 1949.  Everyday, around 2:30pm, you’ll find Bernie hitting golf balls.  Say hello - he has far more stories than I’ve captured in this short five minute interview. If he likes you, he might even offer you a golf lesson.

He made me guess his age and I thought he was in his 70’s.
