However, Sex and the City is still one of the most popular shows. It has become emblematic for the city of New York. All fans wish to walk the streets of New York, just like Carrie did. Well, this is not impossible because the scenes are shot on actual locations around the city. Let’s see where are some of the famous places from Sex and the City in New York:
Carrie’s apartment building
The steps in front of the building Bradshaw lives in are a key place in the series. Carrie often sat there to think and make hard decisions. This is where she kissed Mr. Big goodnight or where she sat with her friends in tough times.
The building’s address is 64 Perry Street. It is a private residential building whose owners are not happy with the great interest that the fans of the show have in taking pictures in front of the doorway. The owners even had the image of their home blurred on Google Maps.
The Meatpacking District
There is no way to forget the funny episode when Samantha had to deal with some transexual prostitutes who were making noise right under the window of her bedroom. That happened when Sam moved into her new expensive apartment in the Meatpacking District. The address where you can find her apartment building is 403 West 13th Street.
Moreover, the Meatpacking District is where the four friends spend most of their time in the series. In this area are all of the nightclubs or brunch cafes, which Sam, Carrie, Charlotte, and Miranda visit.
Louis K. Meisel Gallery
Louis K. Meisel Gallery is the gallery Charlotte managed until season 4. You can visit it at 141 Prince Street. It is a small gallery with expositions of photorealistic paintings.
Carrie may fall in love with Mr. Big in the series, but the love of her life cannot be a man for sure. Carrie’s true love is a pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes. Bradshaw is a fashion addict, and during the series, she is always shopping labeled clothes or shoes. The address of the Manolo Blahnik store Carrie visited in season 6 is 31 West 54th Street.
Soho House is the only exclusive place where Samantha could not get in during the series. Well, she succeeded with fraud, but in the end, she and her friends got kicked out.
