Colony, a Glimpse Into the World of New York City's Rooftop Beekeepers

I’ve written about urban beekeeping a few times previously on Viewing NYC, and it never ceases to amaze me that rooftop apiaries are a thriving industry in the City.

This video, artistically fully made by Chris Manke, shows glimpses of some of the more prominent rooftop bee-keeping areas around New York City, including shots from around Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, all with a haunting soundtrack written by Manke himself.
