When New York Metropolis was strike with a snow squall a handful of weeks back, Albert Hei, 29, took refuge in an igloo.

Nicely, a bogus one, with modern day accouterments.

The plastic dome experienced been installed on the roof of the Time Out Current market New York in Dumbo, Brooklyn. It can easily healthy eight folks and is embellished with twinkle lights and fur throws. Mr. Hei sipped a very hot toddy with his mother and the snow swirled all-around them.

“We were engulfed in this cloud,” he explained. “It was like a wintertime wonderland. It was the final put I thought I would uncover myself.”

Not everyone will be blessed more than enough to have a snow squall, but rooftop plastic domes are just about everywhere this wintertime. More than a dozen accommodations, bars and places to eat are putting up prefab snow globe-type constructions in their outside spaces. There are now locations in the city in which you can sit in one rooftop fake igloo and observe folks hanging out in other fake igloos beneath. Competition for the plastic dome drinker is getting to be intensive.

Mr. Rozenberg, of 230 Fifth, is now contemplating about what is up coming. “We had been imagining of putting in a ski raise, a little ride throughout the roof,” he stated. “But the engineering is out of handle.”
