Take heed: The Carrie Diaries is filming on the Lower East Side today. Bowery Boogie, for one, is not excited: "Oh, great. Here comes the fuckin' Sex and the City television prequel to ruin the neighborhood once more." Filming starts at 9pm at the corner of Delancey and Essex Streets, so if you have a car, don't park it there. [Bowery Boogie]
