Oh! "The Carrie Diaries" will be filming around the neighborhood today... signs are up along East Seventh Street, and perhaps elsewhere... crews for the CW prequel to "Sex and the City" were shooting on Essex Street Tuesday...
It revolves around the eponymous Carrie
Hahah, nice Carrie reference!
in other words, dreadful pap - great, the Spectacle can revisit all the tired crack cliches of the early 80's...
I thought they cancelled that waste of "talent".
Can we organize an army of crusties and issue them bullhorns and march them through the set? Or really anything else to disrupt this shoot?
The signs are on 6th Street too I think. And 3rd? Either way....
I think it's pretty laughable that they're filming a silly show trying to display an utterly fake NYC to fool and beguile other fashionista wannabes to move here. Fluff upon fluff.
When I saw one of the film notice signs yesterday I had to wonder if they'd make mention of the urine stench one usually finds on a hot summer day. Methinksnot.
Say what you want about Sex an dth eCity, but it and Felicity created a lot of tourist buzz for NYC back in the 90s, when we needed it.
The Carrie Diaries is not a TV show, it's an NYU recruiting infomercial designed to lure even more kids out of the cornfields into what has bizarrely become the most expensive college education in the country. NYU tuition, room and board now costs over $60k per year, or $250k for 4 years if the kid somehow manages to graduate. For that much money I'd at least want a T-shirt that says Harvard on it. The 'Rents would be a lot smarter to buy junior a Subways franchise in the East Village, at least then they'd be guaranteed a job.
Oh Heavens to Rhonda, 12:50, you ca nnot b eserious!
No we did not need "tourist buzz", we were getting along just fine without the jizzbags that started flooding into the city after watching these two totally unrealistic shows and deciding that was what it was really like so they all came here to live the life, which is why we are losing our churches and historic buildings and getting 7-11s and fro-yo crap.
If I had known "Sex and the City" would be responsible for accelerating church demolition I would have watched it!
Isn't McSorley's part of Cooper Union? I thought it was when I was there.
Are the glasses of ale still 20 cents like they were when I was in Cooper?
