Movie Business at Chain Store Age

Manhattan’s retail scene played a big role in the popular television show “Sex and the City” and it looks like more of the same in the highly anticipated movie version, which is currently being filmed outside Chain Store Age’s headquarters here on 55th Street and Park Avenue in Manhattan. In fact, our building has been blocked off and the screams from the fans are echoing through the halls here.

As is evidenced by the photo above, all of the girls (left to right: Kristin Davis, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kim Cattrall) are back and they are busy at one of their favorite past times: shopping. They are shown here coming out of the very high-end Walter Steiger store and walking north on Park, stopping just short of our building’s entrance. We all knew there would be at least one shoe-shopping scene in the film. After all, our favorite gal, Carrie, had a closet full of them.

I can’t take credit for this fabulous picture. It comes from our senior desk editor Barbara Hagan, who bravely maneuvered past the film crews for this shot. Although everyone was being shoo’d away from the set—as if we’re in their way when we just want to leave the building—I’m impressed with Barbara’s picture-taking skills. Let’s hope she doesn’t leave us now for PEOPLE.
