Carrie Bradshaw's Original Sex in the City Home Tries Flip

New, 5 comments

Said to be the inspiration for Carrie Bradshaw's brownstone apartment—and the site of some early filming—the townhouse at 64 Perry Street in Manhattan (above, at left) sold last fall for $9M. Now, it's back on the market, with a slightly adjusted price tag of $9.85M. According to an article on the house in the Times, the show's producers were drawn to the iconic facade, the high-profile residents (like Tim Gunn, later star of Project Runway), and the quiet, treed block. Sex in the City die-hards might be more attracted to the house next door, number 66, which served as Carrie's home for the bulk of the show and continues to draw tourists looking for a snapshot. Those in the market for a historic home, rather than an expensive souvenir, would do better with this place, built in 1866, which has some perfectly-preserved historic details but is a little rough around the edges. At least it hasn't yet been tainted by some renovator's heavy hand.
