How curious that those happy to pay $50 an hour to play suburbia in a "curated backyard" would most certainly be unwilling to enjoy the same activities for free in a real backyard in their middle-of-nowhere hometowns.

This is not to rain on someone's protest but has anyone asked for Mayor Mike's permission? He wasn't too comfy with anti-Iraq war protests or those attempted at GOP convention. Now ... Wall Street?? He's rich, has rich friends, get it?

That suburban timeshare lawn on Ludlow looks like a great place for aspiring Samanthas, Carries, Charlottes, and Mirandas to have a 'gritty urban experience'. After hanging out in the vacant mean lush urban garden area, Charlotte and the girls have the scare of their lives as, while asking directions to the J train to head to a rooftop organic Brooklyn wine tasting party/artist display on Lorimer St., a 'real life LES streetperson' approaches them asking for a cigarette. Hand to hand contact accidentally occurs as Carrie nervously passes an American Spirit to the great unwashed.

Hilarity ensues upon return to their UES lofts early the next morning, as their friends convince Carrie to get HIV tests after her real life encounter, which later turn to tears as Carrie recalls the great ups and downs of her now tragically cut short life, and flips through her little black book, issuing apologies to all those she may have hurt in the past.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, the rooftop party was simply devine.
