  • Those little specks are bees!!

Yesterday, the corner of Flatbush and Fulton, down the block from Juniors, was taped off by police from 11 a.m. until mid-afternoon. The cause? A swarming hive of honeybees had been discovered in a large planter, the Times‘ The Local blog reports. No one was hurt, except possibly the bees; police at the scene didn’t know what would happen to the buzzing stingers, though they did eventually disappear, mankind once again triumphing over an invading army of bumbles.
