Bees Swarm Grand Street Mailbox

Posted on: May 31st, 2011 at 2:03 pm by

Our first though upon receiving this email was publicity stunt.  But that’s not the case.  Boogie reader DH just sent in a few photos of a swarm of bees currently clinging to a mailbox at the corner of Grand and Mulberry Streets.  What a crazy sight!

Cops arrived to cordon off the area with red tape. Below is a quick eyewitness report:

There’s a lone cop out there bs’ing with passersby.  I didn’t talk to him but its sort of a bizarre scene with people taking pictures and stopping their cars/bikes.  I suppose they’ve called the bee people to come take care of it.

‘SHNY’ on Suffolk Street Morphs Into New Cafe Called ‘Mr. Rapidan’

Some five months into its tenure at 116 Suffolk Street, Spreadhouse is changing its tune. Or should we say, taste. The short-lived SHNY “creative space” is no more, instead having morphed into a new cafe concept called “Mr. Rapidan.” The changeover was swift, happening just last week. Apparently Mr. Rapidan is pulling double duty, acting as […]

Michael Shah’s Controversial Liquor License for Rochelle’s Renewed Without Community Input
