GREENPOINT - Some Greenpoint residents built an igloo during this weekend's blizzard and listed it on the Airbnb home-sharing website.

They advertised it as a "boutique winter igloo for two."

The listing would have charged $200 for a night’s stay, but Airbnb removed it from the site Sunday.

The company cited "building codes" as the reason it axed the ad.
