Cooper Square igloo



Cooper Square igloo, originally uploaded by Goggla.
One of the things I love about the city is the unexpected...here we were on a beautiful sunny day that was fairly warm, and an ice structure mysteriously appeared in Cooper Square. People flocked around it, touched it, laughed, took pictures...some kids discovered they could melt their handprints into the blocks. It took about three days to melt.

Could it be a metaphor of the building in the background? A structure of glass bricks, hard and strong, but some day, it too will melt away into the history of the city.
