Meet Merlin the English Angora bunny that lives in the Nolita boutique Condor on Elizabeth Street.
Merlin is the king of the bunnies in this part of town as he’s allowed to roam around the shop, has customers bring him carrots, kale and bananas, but also has over 1,000 followers on Instagram. As well, he’s appeared in GQ and a commercial for Nordstrom.
When I visited Condor, Merlin was sitting in his house under the jewellery, not doing much, and the only thing moving was his nose. I have never seen anything like him. I’m not sure if he naturally looks that stylin’ or whether he gets groomed, but you’d probably think he was a pampered pooch instead of a bunny. The staff let you pet him and he lives up to the hype. He really is that fluffy and really that soft. You’ll want to take him home.
