Brooklyn Beekeeper Amy

The New York Times

The Apartment Therapy team was thrilled to see our own Amy Azzarito featured in The New York Times that showcased her (illegal) beekeeping endeavors in Brooklyn...

The story focuses on the renewed interest in beekeeping in New York and the current laws that forbid it. Check out Amy and her friend Barry taking care of their rooftop hive and Queen Bee "Latifah" and all of her 40,000 workers: Tending Hives: Beekeepers Keep the Lid On and don't miss the audio slide show!
