Throwback Thursday to last summer visiting these infamous front steps. This is the “It Girl” of New York City, Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment. I think every young girl who moves to the city dreams of the Carrie Bradshaw experience: walking down the street in a pair of Manolo Blahniks, sipping on Cosmopolitans, writing your own column leading to having your picture on the side of a bus, and of course, finding a Mr. Big. Located in the West Village (specifically 64 Perry Street), Carrie Bradshaw made these fronts steps the most famous steps in Manhattan!
However, what you might not know, is that this apartment was only used for filming the outside scenes and the street is actually very quaint and quiet without all of the hustle and bustle you would see throughout Midtown Manhattan. Carrie’s “real” apartment was located on the Upper East Side on 73rd Street between Park and Madison with rent that only cost $700/month (which is totally unrealistic for those considering moving here).
Although I haven’t landed my big personal stylist career of becoming the next Rachel Zoe or Lauren Conrad YET (which is my equivalent to Carrie writing her own column and having her picture on a bus), I have become the proud owner of a beautiful pair of black leather Christian Louboutins, started my own blog, and found my handsome prince charming.. and this is only the beginning.
