Actress Sarah Jessica Parker has come under fire from a homeowners association in New York City after she staged a photoshoot for her shoe line on the steps of the house featured in her hit TV show ‘Sex And The City’.
The property on Perry Street in Manhattan has become a Mecca for fans of the series who visit the building to see where Parker’s character Carrie Bradshaw lived, and the owners have erected signs in a bid to keep devotees off the steps, reported New York Post.
Parker returned to the building earlier this month to stage a photoshoot for her footwear brand, placing the shoes on the steps and posting pictures of them on her Instagram page.
However, the stunt has infuriated the local homeowners association, who claim the actress failed to obtain proper permission to gain access to the steps.
Gerald Banu, president of the Perry Street Association, said, “I heard about the shoot. They didn’t get the permission from the owner. The situation with ‘Satc’ visitors is still very intense. People who live here get upset that the sidewalks are constantly jammed.
“The only thing I could suggest to SJP is that when they write the next script, please have Carrie move to a new address.”
