Bees Swarm Grand Street Mailbox

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.
