"Remember the Bees That Swarmed Times Square? We Tried to Find Out Where They Came From"

Alex Aubry, the executive chef at The Stinger in the lobby of the InterContinental, has beekeeping built into his duties. He said he was initially nervous around the insects in 2016, when he joined the eatery that serves cocktails and food laced with honey from the rooftop hives.

“To be a beekeeper, you have to be certified,” said Mr. Aubry, who now finds the work relaxing. “They teach you how to handle the bees, how to take care of them, what to look for. Making sure that the queen’s not leaving. If the queen leaves, everyone’s gone.”

Mr. Aubry was adamant that the Times Square bees were not from his hives.

“They were from the Hilton,” he said. “It wasn’t ours. We always check.”
