Bees swarm in New York

CHINATOWN — Thousands of bees swarmed a streetlight on a busy stretch of Mott Street Monday afternoon, forcing police to close down a section of the block while onlookers stopped to gawk at the spectacle.

The latest swarm — the third spotted in Manhattan in as many weeks — clung to a streetlight between Bayard and Pell streets, as a crowd gathered below to stare and snap pictures.

We’re all learning to live with nature.
