Located on the far west side of Manhattan, bordered by Chelsea to the north and the West Village to the south, the Meatpacking District is a trendy commercial neighborhood with a wide range of restaurants, nightlife venues, and high-end designer clothing stores. The area is home to the Whitney Museum of American Art and a stretch of the High Line, an elevated park built atop old railroad tracks. The hip area is a perfect fit for many of the girls' nights out during Sex and the City which ran for six seasons from 1998 to 2004. During the series, Samantha moves to the Meatpacking District after deciding to leave her Upper East Side building. In this video, we are going to take you around five other New York City locations that were made famous by Sex and the City. We are now at the Loeb Boathouse in Central Park located on the east side between 74th and 75th streets. The boathouse was first a wooden two-story Victorian structure that lasted from 1873 to 1954. The red brick and limestone boathouse visitors know of today was opened in 1954 by Carl M. Loeb. With the option of indoor or lakeside eating, the Loeb boathouse offers beautiful views of the lake as well as the park. In The Sex and the City season 3 finale Carrie and Mr. Big meet at the Boathouse restaurant for lunch. Carrie decides to meet with Big after much deliberation and a big fight with Miranda which ends with Carrie promising not to kiss Big. When Big goes in for a kiss, Carrie ducks to try to avoid his kiss and they both fall in the water. We are now at the Plaza Hotel located on Fifth Avenue and 59th Street. This iconic five-star New York City hotel opened in 1907 and is known for its luxury and views of Central Park. The hotel has been the temporary home to notable guests including presidents, royalty and countless celebrities over the years. At the end of Sex and the City season two, Carrie runs into Big in front of the Plaza Hotel after celebrating his engagement to Natasha. Carrie questions why Big didn't choose her and ends up saying 'Your girl is lovely, Hubble,' reciting the famous line from the 1973 movie The Way We Were starring Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford. We are now at Columbus Circle located at 59th Street and 8th Avenue, the main entrance to Central Park where Broadway, 8th Avenue, Central Park South and Central Park West all intersect. In the middle of the busy intersection sits a towering monument to Christopher Columbus mounted on a base surrounded by fountains. The fountains were dedicated on Columbus Day October 12th, 1965. At the fountains is where Carrie and Aidan break up for the second and final time after two seasons of back and forth. It was a sad day for Sex and the City fans who were on Team Aidan. We are now at 66 Perry Street in the West Village located in lower Manhattan. The West Village is a neighborhood known for its designer boutiques and trendy restaurants. Mostly a residential neighborhood with townhouses in public squares, some of its streets are still cobblestoned. Visitors find their way to notable venues in the area, including the historic Stonewall Inn, the site of the 1969 riots that launched the gay rights movement. In the Sex and the City series, every exterior scene filmed at Carrie's stoop was in front of 66 Perry Street. These steps are where Carrie sat, kissed, and cried on. We are now at the Jefferson Market Garden located in Greenwich Village at Greenwich Avenue between Sixth Avenue and West 10th Street. The garden sits adjacent to the Jefferson Market library, a National Historic Landmark. Miranda stumbles upon this elegant community garden while planning her wedding to Steve. Not traditionally romantic, Miranda and Steve get married here. There are many other locations where fans can relive the Sex and the City series as well as the movies. These areas of New York City will stay iconic thanks to Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha.
