Wedneday's parting shot

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!) ...

Breaking the ice on 7th and A

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...

The East River's ice age (circa 2015)

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…

A sign from...?

EVG reader Rik Rocket notes an upward pointing icicle stalactite on the cross at The Church of the Most Holy Redeemer on East Third Street between Avenue A and Avenue B... it's a sign, right?

Walk through Tompkins Square Park? Grab your skates and dog sleds!

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...

Not that this is the first time the Park has been an ice rink...

Careful out there...

Tompkins Square Park Ice Rink is now open

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...

Cool off today with a souvenir piece of the Icicle Audi ice

As you likely remember, the biggest story this — or any other, really — year was the Icicle Audi on East Second Street. (No? All you need to know is right here.)

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 toxic state. And taking up room in the freezer.

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!

Ice pics of the day (so far!)

A reader sends along these shots from 14th Street near First Avenue...

More fun to look at than walk in... or something...

Meanwhile, on Seventh Street, the East Village's original frozen car asks, 'What about me?'

On Jan. 16, we posted these photos by EV Grieve contributor Bobby Williams on Seventh Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue...

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?

It's $27,000. You get to keep the car

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

Avenue A icy/icee wars

A few weeks back, The Scoopinator reported that the new NYC Icy on the other side of Avenue A has taken half of Ray's business (according to Ray) ... so... Slum Goddess yesterday noted that Ray is now selling -- icees...

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?

Icy, Icy Baby

As The Feed noted the other day, NYC Icy is making a return to the East Village ... after Avenue B between Second and Third Streets a few years back.... team Icy is opening up a temp space on Avenue A next to Black Market.... and, as this photo by EV Grieve reader Steven Matthews shows... NYC Icy opened yesterday...

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..."

Ice capades at Cooper Square Hotel

The last, oh, three or four times that I've walked by this service entrance to the Cooper Square Hotel...there are bags of ice just sitting there...melting.
