Finally Legal for NYC Rooftops

Albert Einstein said: "If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would only have 4 years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man."

In New York City, urban beekeepers fought hard to make rooftop beekeeping legal last year. It is still illegal in 89 cities.

Urban beekeeper David Graves claims the bees are very happy on the rooftops of NYC.

"There's a variety of rooftop gardens, community gardens, plants, flowers, trees. It's like a giant orchard for them."

Eating LOCAL honey is one of the best things you can do wherever you are.

He even sells the rooftop NYC honey, raising awareness with every jar.
