1. There Are 6 Beehives Atop A Waldorf Astoria Roof Deck
More than 300,000 bees in six active hives make honey on a rooftop deck twenty stories up. When bee keeping in our city became legal in 2010, the hotel enlisted a full-time beekeeper who set up the hives and extracts the honey used in the hotel restaurants.
Located at 100 East 50th Street, the Waldorf Astoria Hotel became a New York City Landmark in 1993. A historic tour is offered each Thursday and Saturday, which includes lunch in the Peacock Alley Lounge.
