A group of roommates/entrepreneurs in New York City founda use for all of that global warming they were shoveling this weekend. ABC News reports thatPatrick Horton and his roommatesmanaged to fashion an igloo so swanky, they decided to list it as a boutique winter igloo for two on Airbnb, a site which offersvacation rentals as an alternative to hotel rooms.
Horton listed the igloo in Brooklyn as“snowpocalypse’s most desirable getaway.” “Built completely by hand all natural. Come experience this chic dome-style bungalow,” he added. Rent? A cool $200 a night.
The igloo took about six hours to build, but Airbnb managed to pull the ad in a fraction of the time, explaining that Horton’s listing “has failed to meet our occupancy standards and has been removed from search results.”
