Some people are always looking for a way to make an extra buck, or possibly a great joke. Sometimes though, as in the case of the Greenpoint, Brooklyn Igloo listed on Airbnb, they are one in the same.
In the wake of the second largest snowstorm in New York City, a Brooklyn resident reportedly made an igloo in his backyard (show off) and then listed the space for $200 per night (kind of a steal) on the vacation home rental site.
“Dripping with ingenuity and alt-lifestyle aura lays this Snowpocalypse's most desirable getaway,” the post advertised. “Built completely by hand all natural [sic] Come experience this chic dome-style bungalow with Bae.”
The igloo featured air conditioning, wireless internet, and allowed smoking, according to the post. Sadly, it had no heating.
Much like any hopes you had of staying in this igloo, the listing’s lifespan was short; it was removed soon after it was posted to the site.
