It can be lonely being a bunny, hopping around New York without your bunny friends. But bunny owners are attempting to alleviate that floppy-eared sadness by holding regular meetups in Riverside Park.
Yes, bunny meetups are a thing now.
Sunny Mindel says she’s seen the bunny gatherings in the park near 68th street and Riverside Boulevard for the past two Sunday afternoons. There are 356 people in the New York Rabbit Meetup Group, although it’s not clear that they’re behind the recent meetups (the organizers didn’t respond to a message).
The video below from last month in Riverside Park shows about a dozen bunnies, some of whom are big enough to be floppy-eared dogs. It’s by “NYC Buns”, which sounds like a gym for people looking to improve their gluteus muscles. The video’s got a campy kind of brilliance, but the music might drive you insane.
