Has there ever been a fictional character with a more glamorized lifestyle than Carrie Bradshaw? She’s worn designer bags as well as shoes that have sold out immediately afterwards, made Magnolia Bakery world-famous, and, this past summer, even had a pop-up “experience” dedicated to her in an empty space in SoHo. One doesn’t need to “couldn’t-help-but-wonder” why: Carrie made being single and living in New York seem like an endless, well-dressed adventure, where carriage rides in Central Park with romantic millionaires, fabulous parties in Tribeca, and trips to the Vogue closet were always in reach. So when visiting New York City, it’s always fun to see the sites that made up her fantasy.

Many of the places featured in Sex and the City have closed since the show ended in 2004 (RIP Barneys). However, as And Just Like That season two airs on HBO, a new set of hotspots serve as the setting for Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte—as well as new additions Lisa, Nya, and Seema’s—escapades.

The Well

Seema and Carrie go to get Valentine’s Day massages at The Well, the 13,000 square foot Flatiron spa that has an impressive crowd of devotees ranging from social media influencers to CEOs thanks to its East-meets-West medicinal approach. (An example? A facial that combines Biologique Recherche products with acupuncture.)
