From the Daily News:
Joe Gindoff has a really cool pad.
The Jackson Heights, Queens, resident built a 2-ton igloo in the courtyard behind his Hawthorne Court co-op and spent Thursday night inside his chilly creation.
Gindoff assembled the 10-foot-long frozen wigwam over the weekend, even sprucing it up with an ice fireplace.
"It's a fully functional igloo, and I want to prove it by sleeping in it," said Gindoff, an air conditioning service manager who lost his job two weeks ago.
Not even last night's blustery forecast of just 15 degrees swayed the avid outdoorsman's resolve.
"Because of the extreme weather, I thought it would be a good idea to put the igloo to the real test," Gindoff said. "A couple people said they'd stop by and have hot chocolate with me."
P.S. It failed.

What ever floats your boat, strange man.
And it will get a lot on the real estate market/
Probably better built and more spacious than any of the Queens Crap that has gone up in the last ten years.
DOB will fine him for numerous violations. They will then warn him that since he is not building a McMansion or unauthorized apartment building that he will have to tear it down.
Slow news day.
At least he's not one of those attention starved, out of state transplanted, nasaly hipsters.
Too much of that green stuff around it -- no concrete.
I'm sure the banks will give him a mortgage for his igloo.
Oh great...now we have "native traditional housing" to add to our diversity....
what? the igloo didn't get Community Board approval?
So what, kids used to do this every winter in brooklyn
Yes, but did it serve it's true purpose...generating job leads?
