The closing paragraph of writer Plum Sykes' June 2008 Vogue cover story: "It's three o'clock and SJP has to run off to pick James up from school. Before she leaves she says that after SATC: TM is out, she will take the summer off to be with her son and start another film in the fall. Another perfume is in the works, and the clothing line is expanding. I wish her goodbye and pay the bill. As I wander home past the brownstones and boutiques, I can't help feeling a little nostalgic for the New York of the SATC years." Hmm, I can't help but wonder which "New York" this former "It Girl" is feeling nostalgic for: as far as I can tell, the New York of the SATC years is simply the on-screen, whitewashed, wealthy version of the New York that is now a reality off-screen.
