5 NYC Apartments That Let You Live Like The City’s Sex and Carrie Bradshaw

“In New York, they say, you’re always looking for a job, a boyfriend or an apartment.” If you’ve ever looked for an apartment to rent in New York, chances are that at some point you couldn’t help but wonder, “Where’s the closet?” Known for their smaller square footage, New York City apartments don’t tend to lend themselves to extra closet and storage space, so when you find one, it’s a match made in fashionista heaven.

While the actual filming location for Carrie’s iconic apartment was in the West Village, the show placed her fictional apartment on the Upper East Side. We’ve all dreamed of living in Carrie’s fabulous space, so we’ve identified 5 NYC apartment listings in the UES neighborhood with walk-in closets.
