Sarah Jessica Parker infuriates New Yorkers with impromptu photo shoot


Sarah Jessica Parker reportedly has a few New York City residents “up in arms”. The 49-year-old actress held an impromptu photo shoot with her shoe line at 66 Perry Street in the Big Apple, the home where her fictional former Sex and the City character Carrie Bradshaw resided. And apparently residents who live at the famous house are incensed she brought so much attention to their home, especially since they have a metal sign crossing their front steps which reads: “Do NOT go on staircase please.”

'The owners are up in arms as they deal with relentless tourists'
“The owners are up in arms as they deal with relentless tourists, and SJP has ignored their requests for an explanation on how she could endorse the shoot, even though ‘no trespassing’ signs are posted,” a source told Page Six. “SJP used their house during the years of filming, and now won’t acknowledge that she and her company used the steps and facade, this time without permission, to promote her shoe line.”

It seemed Sarah wasn’t cognisant of how upset she would make the 66 Perry Street owners when she shared images from the spontaneous photo shoot online with her Instagram followers on October 7.

One of the images she posted on Instagram that day has a caption that reads: “It was take your @sjpcollection shoes to work day. #longdayforCarrie #whewwwwthosesteps #runninginheels #taxi!”
