Carrie, who originally rented her apartment before buying it with the help of friend Charlotte (played by Kristin Davis), is said to have paid “between $150,000 and $200,000” at the time.

The property’s value would likely have increased by at least $US450,000 (AU$633,000) over the next two decades.

However, those numbers pale in comparison to the value of the apartment’s real exterior — at 64 Perry Street in the West Village.

The brownstone on which Carrie’s apartment facade is based last sold in 2012 for a whopping $9.85 million (AU$13.98 million).

In one of the earlier seasons of the long-running show, Carrie claims her rent is only $700 a month.

However, the columnist took advantage of rent control, a measure in many U.S. cities where the rent is essentially “frozen” on a property for as long as that tenant — or his beneficiary — lives in it.

Without rent control, Carrie today could expect to pay at least US$3,000 (AU$4,200) per month for a comparable home.

In a nod to the spirited tone of the original show, the shock factor is certainly in order as Carrie, who gets steamy with her husband Mr. Big in the clip, is seen in a radio interview asking her if she ever masturbated. in public — to which the shopaholic boldly responds, “Not since Barneys closed!”

Also featured in the trailer is the late Willie Garson, who passed away in September.

One SATC cast member conspicuously missing from the new series is Kim Cattrall, who played fellow bestie Samantha Jones.

Cattrall famously declined to reprise her role for a third film, and while she was reportedly the reason for the third film’s cancellation, it’s unclear if she was ever invited to be a part of the latest HBO Max show. .
