On September 1st, 2006 at 1:30pm, a 300 pound block of ice was delivered to a park bench on Chrystie Street between Stanton and Rivington in New York City’s Lower East Side. A surveillance camera was set up to document the slow melt of the ice block which unexpectedly slipped off the bench and shattered into pieces on the sidewalk, obstructing pedestrian traffic. Throughout the day and into the evening, the ice was kicked, smashed and further broken up until completely melted.
