6. Beekeeping at One Bryant Park
The Durst Organization, a big proponent of beekeeping, has over 100,000 European honeybees in approximately 6,000 square feet on the seventh floor of One Bryant Park. Brooklyn Grange helps to maintain the hives, and harvests the honey. In addition to One Bryant Park, The Durst Organization has green roofs on eight of its other commercial buildings. Their program has become a huge success, and we hear the honey makes for nice gifts throughout the year.
