SEX RUINED THE CITY

Sarah Jessica Parker is everywhere - a veritable whirlwind of  insouciant sass as she hypes the film release of Sex and The City.

But she also claims in an interview with New York magazine that the successful sex series is partly responsible for ruining New York City.

Unlike Madonna who claimed New York is boring (this coming from someone who affects a Brit accent)- SJP still loves New York but laments the loss of its identity through gentrification.

 "When I arrived in the city in 1976, New York was a wreck," she recalled fondly.

"It was the best place in the world.  It promised everything.

"Now the city is so affluent --all the colors, all the shops, the look of a street from block to block is just terribly absent of distinguishing coffee shops, bodegas.

"All of that stuff that made it possible to live in New York is gone. 

"I guess there are places in Queens that are affordable," she said wistfully.
