Sex and the City was one of the greatest shows of all time with a fan base that just keeps on growing, even more since the show went off the air! The HBO series followed the lives of four professional women living in New York City and their struggles to find love while balancing their work, relationships, and family. It was a huge success, spawning two feature films and a spin-off series called The Carrie Diaries. The show was developed under unique circumstances — it’s based off a book that was coined from a collection of Candace Bushnell’s New York columns about her real-life dating experiences. Surprisingly, the rights for the book were bought from Bushnell for a very low price compared to what the franchise is worth now! It’s continued to uphold its popularity with a dedicated group of know-it-all fans who can reference quotes and refer back to specific scenes at the drop of a hat, so we’ve decided to try and dig up some things that the average fan might not know. Here’s a look at 15 behind the scenes secrets from the show:
15. The Magnolia Bakery
For some reason, the food in Sex and the City always looked so good. In fact, we could go for one of those huge pizza slices right about now…but the most famous foodie scene turned out to be when Miranda and Carrie are sitting on a bench in front of the Magnolia Bakery eating cupcakes. The scene was shot at the Magnolia Bakery on 401 Bleecker Street. This particular bakery became so popular after the show aired that they had to hire a bouncer! We’re pretty sure this is the first and only cupcake bouncer to exist!
