Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw just can’t say goodbye to her sweet West Village brownstone. Her neighbors, however, wish she would.

And that’s not just because she and Mr. Big moved into a new home.

Parker — who played the role of Bradshaw in “Sex and the City” for six seasons and two movies — recently returned to her character’s former fictional home to shoot a commercial for her new shoe line, to the dismay of the real life residents of the brownstone at 66 Perry Street, according to the New York Post.

The owners have posted “no trespassing” signs in front of their property, due to the groups of SATC fans that visit the home.

“I heard about the shoot. They didn’t get the permission from the owner. The situation with ‘SATC’ visitors is still very intense. People who live here get upset that the sidewalks are constantly jammed,” Gerald Banu, president of the Perry Street Association, told the newspaper. [NYP] — Claire Moses

    The amount of disrespect some of these “celebrities” have for ordinary people and their property is appalling!

    Didn’t the owners get paid for the use of their property when filming? I’ve watched the woman that lives there spray water on girls taking a picture in front of the stoop BEFORE the movies were filmed. If it was such an issue then, why allow it to be used continuously? Sounds like the owners want to have their cake and eat it too. Also, why would anyone seek permission from the owners to shoot on the sidewalk? If they have a permit to shoot there from the city, isn’t that enough? Owning your apartment or building does not mean you own the block, street, neighborhood or city.

    66 Perry’s owner has a sign asking that people taking photos in front of the house put a donation in a box next to the steps to support animal welfare.

      And I wonder if one animal gets the benefit of that.
      Movies pay for use of anybody s location. They get permits for street/sidewall use.
      PLEEEEZ…. Put a box out for donations? sure. is the box labeled by Animal Protection? is the money in the box secured and not removable?
      NYC is a movie town, and many blocks have had the TV or Movie crew, a few days and gone…. What makes Perry Street different.
