Alec Baldwin wants to leave New York

Alec Baldwin is ready to leave New York.

The '30 Rock' actor is beginning to "crave" Los Angeles after over 30 years in the Big Apple because he thinks he would be able to give wife Hilaria and their six-month-old daughter Carmen a more peaceful and private life.

He said: "To be a New Yorker meant you gave everybody five feet. You gave everybody their privacy. And now we don't leave each other alone. Now we live in a digital arena, like some Roman Colosseum, with our thumbs up or thumbs down...

"I probably have to move out of New York. I just can't live in New York anymore. Everything I hated about LA I'm beginning to crave. LA is a place where you live behind a gate, you get in a car, your interaction with the public is minimal. I used to hate that. But New York has changed.

"I want my newest child to have as normal and decent a life as I can provide. New York doesn't seem the place for that anymore."

Last year saw Alec's MSNBC talk show axed following allegations he had used homophobic slurs, while his Broadway run in 'Orphans' ended early and experienced a cast change before opening following his tensions with co-star Shia LaBeouf.

Though the 55-year-old actor - who also has 18-year-old daughter Ireland with ex-wife Kim Basinger - had a "great" 2013 because of the birth of his youngest child, he admits professionally, things were "pretty awful".

In a lengthy essay for New York magazine, he wrote: "I've read where a number of people have felt that 2013 was a s***ty year. For me, it was actually a great year, because my wife and I had a baby. But, yeah, everything else was pretty awful. And I find myself bitter, defensive, and more misanthropic than I care to admit.

"And I'm trying to understand what happened, how an altercation on the street, in which I was accused -- wrongly -- of using a gay slur, could have cascaded like this. There's been a shift in my life. And it's caused me to step back and say, 'This is happening for a reason.' "
