Sarah Jessica Parker SJP Showroom coming to 156 5th Avenue in the Flatiron

Racked is reporting that an SJP showroom (Sarah Jessica Parker) will be opening in late spring or early summer at 156 5th Avenue in the Flatiron (between 20th Street and 21st Street).

The 3000 square foot showroom will feature SJP shoes, which are handmade in Italy and sold through Nordstrom. But without a Nordstrom in the city, the showroom will apparently let you check out the Sex and the City stars award winning line of shoes right here in our neighborhood.
