SJP as Carrie Bradshaw

As a born and bred New Yorker, I’m drawn to shows about my city, taking comfort in the familiar sights and settings; yet I often find myself asking, “Did the writers of some of these shows ever step foot in Manhattan?”

I can shake off the inconsistencies, but I sometimes wonder about all the people saving their babysitting and paper route money hoping to someday move to the Big Apple hoping to mirror the glamorous life seen on the small screen.

Hence, a guide to separating fact from fiction: 

‘Smash’ only lasted two seasons, but it was long enough to get your hopes up that moving here would duplicate the luck had by actress “Karen Cartwright” (Katherine McPhee), who went on, what? One audition, which resulted in a lead on Broadway. This is definitely the land of opportunity where many find success, but it usually takes more than five minutes after you get off the Greyhound.

Who got it right:

America Ferrer

On ‘Ugly Betty,’ the poncho-ed “Betty Suarez” (America Ferrera) started out as the assistant to Mode editor-in-chief “Daniel Meade” (Eric Mabius), took on extra assignments to help further her career in publishing, put up with competitive, back stabbing, snarky, (sometimes crazy) co-workers, and eventually proved she was not just competent, but valuable. Then Betty took all she learned and went and got herself a better job – in London no less. It all happened over the course of a few years.

Relationships

When it comes to relationships, ‘Sex And The City’ takes the (wedding) cake. “Carrie Bradshaw” (Sarah Jessica Parker) put it out there that if you hang around Manhattan long enough (ten years, for her) and wait out the marriage of the millionaire you have your sights set on, (in her case, Chris Noth’s “Mr. Big”), he’ll eventually marry you (after he jilts you), then buy you a penthouse on Fifth Avenue.

Who got it right:

Mariska as Olivia

At the end of last season’s ‘Law & Order: SVU’, “Detective Olivia Benson” (Mariska Hargitay) saw her relationship with “Detective Brian Cassidy” (Dean Winters) end, and her Commanding Officer “Lieutenant Declan Murphy” (Donal Logue) get reassigned, putting her back in charge of the squad. Like many of New York’s single women, who have been disappointed by love too many times, and are no longer fulfilled by their jobs, Liv seeks happiness elsewhere: motherhood.

Housing

Let’s talk apartments. You’re still clinging to that fantasy that you will end up roommates with “Monica” (Courtney Cox), sharing her grandmother’s rent-controlled two-bedroom with a sprawling terrace. You know you are. Admit it.

Who got it right:

Alison Pill

When “Maggie Jordan” (Alison Pill) of ‘The Newsroom’ splits with her boyfriend “Don” (Thomas Sadoski), she goes to live with her friend “Lisa” (Kelen Coleman), who needs a roommate despite the fact that she works in sales at a high end boutique and moonlights as a server for a caterer. Yes it’s that expensive to live here. Who got it really right: “Hannah Horvath” (Lena Dunham) and the ‘2 Broke Girls.’ They live in Brooklyn.

Safety

As far as safety goes, week after week there’s this false sense of security disseminated by the likes of “Detective Danny Reagan” (Donnie Wahlberg) and his entire ‘Blue Bloods’ family, blanket the city en masse, ridding us of bad guys. New York’s Finest work overtime to keep us safe, but there’s still crime. In fact, I haven’t felt completely at ease since “Lenny Briscoe” (Jerry Orbach) retired.

Who got it right:

SJP hat

Believe it or not, ‘Sex And The City.’ Carrie lived here a decade without incident, but even the most savvy New Yorker can make a wrong turn. When she ends up on an unfamiliar, lonely street, she gets held up at gunpoint. Luckily, the mugger took only her purse and a pair of Manolos.

Socialite Life

One of the more exciting reasons to live here is for the social life you’re going to have, right? For young people, Manhattan is their oyster, at least on ‘Gossip Girl.’ Bergdorf’s and Birkin bags, sophisticated parties at the Metropolitan Club, then piling into to someone’s limo or chauffer driven Town Car to go clubbing downtown, where velvet robes fall to the wayside as a way of saying, “We’ve been waiting for you.” This is the life of “Blair Waldorf” (Leighton Meester) and “Serena van der Woodsen” (Blake Lively), and actual young New Yorkers with wealthy parents. You will live vicariously as you read about them on the society pages as well as on Page Six each morning, when you “borrow” your neighbor’s paper to save the dollar.

Who got it right:

Taylor Momsen

Well, ‘Gossip Girl.’ The Serenas and Blairs of this city keep their circles tight, aka unwelcoming to outsiders -- whether they’re from the outer boroughs or the outer reaches of our country or wherever it is you come from. To them, there is no life outside of Manhattan, except for the three months when they’re in the Hamptons. Keep in mind how dismissive, condescending and, disdainful the uptown crowd was to “Dan Humphrey” (Penn Badgley) and his sister, “Jenny” (Taylor Momsen), because they lived in Brooklyn and took the subway, which by the way costs $2.50. You’ll need a MetroCard.

A word to the wise: pay a visit first.
