Adam Johnson, 35 years old, associate lawyer in a New York law firm looks after four hives in a neighboring community garden. “The New York City Beekeepers’ Association to which I belong thinks there are about a hundred hives in New York.

If you add people of Mexican and Puerto Rican origins, who have rural roots, and other groups of young people, the figures could get as high as 500 hives.”
