Sex And The City star Chris Noth has delivered another blow to the city where the TV show and new movie is set, insisting New York isn't as great as it used to be.
His comments come just weeks after Sex and The City producers snubbed the Big Apple for the world premiere of the film, and held it in London instead.
Speaking to publisher Ron Galotti - the inspiration for his Mr. Big character - Noth, who first arrived in New York in the 1970s, tells Interview magazine says, "New York is pretty much commercialised to the point of no return"
Adding he misses the "diverse eccentrics" and "different neighbourhoods" that were once such a big part of the city used to fill the city: "That's all been washed out. It's very suburban. The art scene really left, except in patches. It's all about sort of a corporate sensibility, and it's squeezed out room for any other kind of sensibility."
And Noth is planning to deal another blow to New York by moving his Cutting Room night club out of the Big Apple and into Las Vegas.
He explains, "I want to take the club to Vegas. I think a Cutting Room would be great in Vegas. I just haven't really had the time to go out there and schmooze people and try to get them to invest millions of dollars."
