Two of our own hives on a NYC rooftop!

Highest Beehive in the World

The growth of beekeeping in cities is allowing urban beekeepers to get creative with the location and height of their hives.  The most common spots for urban beehives is on rooftops, including skyscrapers and office buildings. The highest hive you can find in the world is located right in New York City on the 76th floor of the Residence Inn hotel near Central Park. This 220 meter (723 foot) high apiary hosts six hives which totals to about 180,000 honey bees. Timothy McGlinchey, the Residence Inn Central Park Area General Manager claims that they have done enough research and cannot find a hive higher than his hives. Ever since New York City legalized hives in 2010, beekeeping has gained popularity and there are currently nearly 300 registered hives in New York City.
