Visible crew/equipment: The girls pick up Sam and when the cab leaves the camera is reflected on the rear window. (Pausing is not necessary at all, but it's fun to pause and check for a huge white sheet behind the camera, which gives away the mistake).

Factual error: When the girls are waiting for the new Yankee to sign the baseball, there are shots of other baseball players walking into the locker room. One of them is wearing number 9. Number 9 was worn by Roger Maris and was retired by the Yankees in 1984.

I heart ny - S4-E18

Revealing mistake: Just after Big has left NY for good, Carrie leaves his apartment and is walking down the street. A leaf (that another mistake pointed out was digital as it was falling to the ground) is lying on the sidewalk. Carrie picks it up, but it is obviously an artificial one made from plastic and fabric.

The one - S6-E12

Visible crew/equipment: When Charlotte leaves her apartment building on the way to the party, she puts on large sunglasses. You can see what appears to be camera equipment, in the reflection of the plastic lenses. There are two white squares, which look like a camera light and filter screen. (00:22:20)

I heart ny - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: When the horse drawn buggy is pulling over to the curb in front of the hospital, you can see it dodging traffic and cars. But after Carrie leaves and the buggy pulls away with only Mr. Big, suddenly there are no cars or traffic in sight. The entire street from that direction appears to be completely empty. (00:22:50)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: It is not dodging traffic: There are just a couple of cars next to the buggy. She steps off, talks to Big and then he leaves and we get to see two seconds of an empty part of the street. Nothing wrong here.

The real me - S4-E2

Character mistake: Miranda, Charlotte and Carrie are sitting in the cafe waiting for Samantha, when she runs in late, armed with her photos. Just before she'd arrived, a waitress had come to take their order - Carrie ordered a drink but nobody ordered food, but when Samantha offers the photos to look at Miranda says something like "But only till the food arrives." They didn't order any food.

Charlotte: How can you forget a guy you've slept with?
Carrie: Toto, I don't think we're in single digits anymore.
