No Trespassing and the City!

Every December, while in New York, I make a pilgrimage to Carrie’s brownstone from fave television show Sex and the City.  Even though I have visited this location quite a few times over the years, I never, ever get tired of it.  To me, it is the quintessential New York location.   I was especially excited to stalk Carrie’s brownstone this year because I had read that the real life owners, tired of stalkers taking pictures on their famous stoop, had installed a large metal chain blocking access to their home.  I was dying to see if it was true.  And sure enough, it was!

My boyfriend and I were cracking up as we walked up to the house and saw the thick metal chain stretched across the entrance complete with a plastic “No Trespassing” sign.  I think it is absolutely hilarious that the owners did this because, for one, the chain and sign are a complete eyesore on what is otherwise an ADORABLE townhouse. I mean, the whole thing is just so un-Carrie!  The least they could have done would be to put up a cute little wrought iron gate to match the stair railing.  Come on, owners!  Carrie can’t live in a house with a sign like that – she’s a fashion icon for pete’s sake!   And secondly, I think the big ol’ sign only draws attention to the house rather than distracting from it.  LOL  I just don’t understand people!  I mean, if it were my townhouse I’d be standing out there all day, everyday shouting “Yes, this is Carrie’s apartment building and I live here!  I am the real-life Carrie Bradshaw!  Would you want to take a picture with me?  And I’d be happy to sign an autograph for you, too!”  It could be like a full time job!  🙂  LOL  I really hope that the owners aren’t so completely bent out of shape that they are not going to allow filming to take place there for the much-rumored SATC sequel.

On an ironic side note, for the months leading up to my New York trip I had been jokingly suggesting to my boyfriend that he should propose to me on the top of Carrie’s stoop.  It’s a good thing he didn’t take my advice to heart, as his plans would have been seriously thwarted if he had.  LOL

Hopefully all of you SATC stalkers out there were able to snap a pic on Carrie’s stoop before the ugly “No Trespassing” chain went up.  I am very thankful that I was able to!  🙂  But I couldn’t help but wonder . . .

. . . do you think this could be why such a sign went up?  🙂

Until next time, Happy Stalking! 🙂

Stalk It (but don’t trespass!): Carrie’s brownstone is located at 66 Perry Street in the West Village  in New York.
