New York Hilton Midtown Welcomes Bees at its Rooftop

The bees are coming to town with a big buzz! The New York Hilton Midtown has just unveiled its new residents in time for National Honey Month: 450,000 adopted bees that will live permanently (and rent-free) at the hotel's Green Rooftop in their new state-of-the art beehives.

New York Hilton Midtown Hotel welcomes bees at its rooftop and arrive with a vintage yellow taxi

The six queens, named Connie, Shelby, Ruby, Phoebe, Suite B and Beatrice, received the royal treatment while they made their way to their new homes in New York City. The bees arrived in a vintage yellow taxi and walked the blue carpet just a few blocks away from their favorite nectar destination, also known to humans as Central Park. The newly installed luxury bee condominiums will allow the new residents to roam freely and sip the best nectars that the city that never sleeps has to offer.
