The 55 year-old actor has penned an essay, published in New York Magazine's Vulture, where he talks about life in the public eye, reports

"I just can't live in New York anymore. Everything I hated about Los Angeles, 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," Baldwin wrote.

"It's goodbye to public life. I've lived this for 30 years, I'm done with it," he added.
