Urban Apiary

Location: Brooklyn, New York
Featuring: Jon Feldman and C. Eddie Diaz

Eve Felder’s bees in Duchess County inspired Jon Feldman to start his own urban apiary. He’d always assumed that one day he would live out in the country with a small garden and bees close by. He never considered keeping bees in the city; he thought the noise and pollution would keep the bees from doing their jobs. Then his friend Brandon had the idea to put them on the roof above Roberta’s garden. When they began, beekeeping was illegal in New York; now they get ten gallons from each hive.
