Was Carrie Bradshaw Ever 23?

by Hannah Seligson

Sex and The City Without the Manolos

Moving to the city as a twentysomething female one is destined to conjure up images of “Sex and the City”.?Ǭ As you walk down the street, desperately trying to find a cab in your three-inch heels, you think of Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, and Samantha hitting the town decked out in their Jimmy Choos and highly coveted designer handbags.?Ǭ Now, as you walk down the street in your Banana Republic shoes, with three friends in tow, holding your fake Louis Vuiton bag, you feel so “Sex and the City”.?Ǭ You soon realize, though, that the endless supply of men, alcohol, money, and great shoes are really an urban legend, most likely propagated by the many gay writers on “Sex and the City” who were living out their own fantasies about what it must be like to be a single gal in New York City.

Some names are familiar and some are downright surprising. Scott Stringer’s name, the new Manhattan Borough President-elect, keeps surfacing in conversations as a contender for even higher office.

SoHo Art Parade: Deitch Projects and Paper Magazine begin a New SoHo Tradition

by SoHo Journal Staff

This past September a well-organized event sponsored by the Deitch Gallery people began on Grand Street with a parade route running from Crosby to Wooster Streets.
