For simply two nights in November, Airbnb is renting a model of Carrie’s enviable brownstone that begged the query, “How did a intercourse columnist afford this attractive residence on the Higher East Aspect?” It is received all of the accoutrements that made it so memorable on the present, plus a digital go to from Carrie herself, Sarah Jessica Parker. (Huge, Aidan and different flaky love pursuits not included.)
The brownstone stays will happen simply weeks forward of the premiere of “And Simply Like That …,” the upcoming HBO Max collection that continues the adventures of Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte sans Samantha. (HBO Max and CNN share a mother or father firm, WarnerMedia.) Oh, and since the unique “Intercourse and the Metropolis” premiered 23 years in the past, every one-night keep will price friends simply US$23.
Parker will greet friends (by way of video) within the type of one among Carrie’s many contemplative monologues earlier than turning them unfastened into her character’s fabulous residence.

It is a recreation, situated in New York’s tony Chelsea neighborhood. (Oh, and although the keep solely prices $23 earlier than taxes, friends are liable for getting themselves to New York, per Airbnb.)
