New York’s Waldorf=Astoria Installs Rooftop Beehives

Waldorf=Astoria New York

This month The Waldorf=Astoria is joining the growing ranks of green, urban hotels that are harvesting their own honey from rooftop beehives. The luxury hotel will now be home to a colony of 45,000 bees, as six beehives are being installed on a rooftop space on the 20th floor next to a chef’s garden. Honey from these hives will be used in dishes at the restaurant, focusing on locally sourced ingredients and sustainable cuisine. You can’t get much more “local” in the farm-to-table food movement!

To celebrate this new addition to The Waldorf=Astoria’s esteemed clientele, the historic hotel will be holding a “hive naming” social media contest in April. For more information, visit www.waldorfnewyork.com.
