How legal is to keep bees in the city? Please let me know I am in a small town in Pennsylvania. I got my home with a small garden in the back but also I got an old house which I am fixing it, a friend in New York keep a bee hive in his appartment the bees are allowed to go out and in at will thru a window. and he has everything under glass so you can get a good idea when the honey is ready. Very neet but I think is not so legal but In New York everything goes. let me know your opinion.
