EVG reader Matt Kay shared this photo ... showing an ice shelf potentially ready to break off from Fifth Street at Avenue A ...
Updated 10:30 a.m.
Several EVG readers said that they alerted the city to this frozen hydrant... and there's ice melt now on the scene (h/t skadonk!) ...

EVG reader Peter d. shared this photo from this evening... there were reports of falling ice at 109 Avenue A at Seventh Street... a crew from Paul Signs were called in with a bucket truck to remove ice from the building before any more fell...

An EVG reader checked in on the East River earlier this morning… we no longer have the Freezepocalyptic conditions that we saw from Monday, but ice floes remain…
… and a panoramic shot…

Meanwhile, if you were planning on using the ferry service today… no luck…
Due to ice conditions in the East River, service is currently suspended until further notice. To sign up for text alerts, text ERF to 57682.— East River Ferry (@eastriverferry) February 21, 2015

Walked through Tompkins Square Park early this morning... it was icy ... but plowed. Mostly!
(One Park watcher said the place was only plowed for crews to shoot scenes for the Jim Gaffigan TV pilot ... have no idea if the plow part is true... crews are there today to film, though ...)
Anyway, apparently things haven't gotten much better as the day progresses...
@evgrieve Tompkins looks & feels like the Yukon right now, ice EVERYWHERE. Only dog sleds & ice skates should be allowed— introspectivenarwhal (@bonatron9000) February 6, 2014
Not that this is the first time the Park has been an ice rink...
Careful out there...

A walk through parts of Tompkins Square Park this morning can prove to be a treacherous journey... parts of the Park haven't been shoveled/plowed, etc. ... and no sign of any rock salt just yet...
Also slippery... the plywood walkway outside the incoming 7-Eleven on Avenue A and East 11th Street...

As we exclusively reported on Jan. 24, the owner of the Icicle Audi was able to chip away enough of the ice-covered Audi to move it... and he left behind Icicle Audi ice for various souvenir collectors. Like us!
Instead of selling a souvenir chunk of ice then – when the eyes of the world were on the Icicle Audi... we waited until it got hot out ... when people may be more desperate for a chunk of ice — a liquid of unknown burst NYC water pipe origins frozen into this solid
So, behold — with a newspaper for authenticity ...
Bid early and often — and quickly. I've already heard from those guys at Death & Co.
Bonus January flashback!

Same situation has what happened on East Second Street yesterday... broken underground pipe results in frozen car.
But, outside this post, there was zero media coverage. And the Icicle Audi gets on the local TV news, the Post, Gothamist...
Reps for this car contacted us to see what we could do about getting it some love and attention. Anyone?

Actually, EV Grieve contributor Bobby Williams passes along these ice car photos from Seventh Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue...

Thanks to Slum Goddess for letting me borrow the photos! And be sure to read the rest of her post, which features a headline that I hope someone in the mainstream media borrows: Just read my fucking shit.
Anyway, will NYC Icy now start serving hot dogs or egg creams?

And they have a chocolate-bacon flavor. Urp.

Parks Department apparently doesn't care if you fall on your ass on the way to the Tompkins Square Park dog run
Where the term "sheet of ice" is acceptable to use. I've heard some people grumble about this... things like, "Would it kill them to throw down a little salt over here..."
