Avenue When Carrie and Big decide to give their relationship another try in Season 2, they go out for dinner to this intimate Italian restaurant. While they are there, Carrie discovers that not only is her boyfriend a regular but that he also regularly gets up to sing with the house band. Actor Chris Noth is also a real-life regular, just like his character. The Reservoir is a favorite spot for the runner in the group, Charlotte, but all of the girls run the track together in an episode as well.
We cover the reservoir on our Central Park Middle Tour. Carrie promises Miranda she will not kiss him at lunch. When they meet up at The Boathouse, Big goes in for a kiss. To keep her promise and avoid his kiss, Carrie ducks and they both fall into the water. If you are in Central Park around noon, consider lunch at the Loeb Boathouse. Her dealings with the art community lead to her being a subject in multiple works of art during the series, including one where she is photographed dressed as a man.
While there, she meets Wade. Wade is charming and carefree and fun…and lives with his parents. They keep seeing each other for awhile, and Carrie enjoys having his mother offer them cookies and lemonade and wait on them. Everything is fine until Wade blames Carrie for his stash of marijuana when his mother finds it. She leaves the apartment and takes the stash with her, smoking it with the girls later that night.

The building next door, 64 Perry, was actually used for the first three seasons and was then replaced in favor of the fancier-looking 66 Perry for the subsequent seasons. Though it is hard to imagine Carrie without her front steps, the setting for so many great moments in the show, there are none at 73rd St. Also, when Samantha decides to leave her stuffy Upper East Side building after they judge her for her wild lifestyle she moves to this neighborhood. Though she tangles a bit with the local transvestite prostitute population, she eventually makes peace and comes to love her neighborhood.
The final scene of the Sex and the City movies shows the girls heading out for a night in the Meatpacking District.
While you are in the Meatpacking District, be sure to head over to the High Line. Sex and the City ended before the High Line opened, but you can be sure that the girls would have been spending a lot of time on it.
