Swarm of Bees Shuts Down Manhattan Street

Times Square was a hive of activity Tuesday afternoon, as more than 40,000 bees swarmed a hot dog stand at the corner of Broadway and West 43rd Street.

A swarm of bees land on a hot dog cart in Times Square in New York City, U.S., August 28, 2018.

Police estimated about 30,000 bees had gathered in the area that was already buzzing with pedestrians, tourists and traffic, but were unsure what attracted them.

Eventually a New York Police Department roadblock was set up, and a man in protective gear removed the swarm with the aid of a vacuum cleaner.

Trump to Republican voters: 'I love Florida' and endorse Ron DeSantis
While Putnam was focused on a grassroots campaign, DeSantis was an nearly nightly feature on Fox News, usually defending Trump. He had become one of the most powerful Republicans in Congress before deciding to run for agriculture commissioner.

"Literally, the craziest thing I've seen", said Diego Mendez from New Jersey. "But it's definitely the craziest thing I've seen".

The New York Police Department has a number of officers with skills in bee keeping according to the department's official bee keeper Twitter account. The collection of bees immediately became the biggest attraction at the NY tourist destination with hundreds of people lining up to snap a photo.

The scene drew crowds of tourists taking photographs. Fifteen minutes and one ladder later, the bee vacuum dude seemed to have gotten most the bees. "They will rehive them". It's unknown whether any bees were harmed during the incident.
