Sex and the City and NYC

May 25, 2022

Many generations of women have grown up with the iconic TV series Sex and the City. You guessed it right- I am also one of them. I loved everything about the TV show and have seen each season at least three times. I loved the outfits, the drama, the wisdom and the fun that the awesome foursome was bringing with each episode.

We take a look at some of the most iconic Sex and the City locations in NYC which are an absolute must visit!

  1. Carrie Bradshow and her NYC apartment

Carrie Bradshow is really a character with no expiration date. A journalist, a girl in love with NYC and a woman who is on the lookout for real, deep love. Her stories make us laugh, sob, connect and dream. Carrie lived in this beautiful rent-controlled apartment supposedly on 245 East 73rd Street. The apartment was small, but very personalized with a beautiful walk-in closed and a cozy bedroom. The first 3 seasons, the apartment was located at 64 Perry Street before jumping next door to 66 Perry Street.

2. The Yankee Stadium and going back into the game

Carrie and her relationship with Big starts from the first season of the show pretty much to its very end. Breakups, getting back together moments, a full rollercoaster of love and drama. During one of the more severe breakups, the other girls take Carrie to a Yankee game at the stadium. A ball is dropped behind the court, Carrie catches it and later on has a player sign it for her. She then asks the same player out in an attempt to 'get back in the game.'
