GREENPOINT, Brooklyn — While many across the tri-state continue to dig out from the historic Blizzard of 2016, a Brooklyn man has taken a different approach to dealing with the feet of powder left in the wake of last weekend's storm.

Patrick Horton, 28, built a massive igloo in his Greenpoint backyard -- where some 27 inches of snow fell -- and later listed it AirBnB.

The asking price was $200 per night under the listing "Boutique Winter Igloo for 2." After all, it is Brooklyn.

AirBnB later took down the ad because it didn’t meet occupancy standards -- namely, having running water and electricity, and a roof that doesn't melt, according to an email from AirBnB that Horton gave to PIX11 News.

Horton is now considering listing his beloved igloo on Craigslist -- before it melts.
