In the movies...
It's becoming movie season here in New York again. You can find a movie or television show being shot here any day of the week. In the city the hot number right now is the launch of "Sex in the City:The Movie." These are some of the famous location spots: Barneys, 113-115 7th Ave, City Bakery, 3 W 18th St (you have to taste their marshmallows, and besides, Maury's been on Martha), Magnolia Bakery, 401 Bleecker Street, Restaurant Florent, 69 Gansevoort St (sad to say, closing—we will miss you very much), Sushi Samba, 245 Park Ave at 20th St, Central Park’s Bethesda Fountain and Loeb Boathouse, Bryant Park, 40-42nd Street between 5th and 6th Aves and the West Village's Perry Street. Oddly enough I ran into this film crew or rather they almost ran into me as they drove around Manhattan, crossing paths three times in a single day.
