(Reuters) - While in other parts of the world honeybees have been creating a buzz because of their rapid decline, in New York their population has been soaring for the past few years, literally. The number of urban beekeepers has exponentially grown according to Andrew Coté, President of New York City Beekeepers Association, with registered beehives growing ten-fold in the past five years. In Manhattan, many keep their hives on rooftops, including skyscrapers and office buildings which make for "fantastic apiaries", according to Coté.
