Alec Baldwin, So Over NYC, Selling Greenwich Village Condo

The Cinema Society With Montblanc And Dom Perignon Host A Screening Of Sony Pictures Classics' "Still Alice"
Alec Baldwin is soooo over New York, New York, he is selling his one-bedroom apartment in Greenwich Village for $2.35 million.

Not so long ago, the actor told New York Magazine about how he "just can't live in New York anymore." With the paparazzi harassing his family, fans clicking phones in his face, and his relatively new reputation as a homophobe, Baldwin said his love affair with the Big Apple is done. Then he hauled the ultimate insult at Manhattan.

"Everything I hated about L.A., I'm beginning to crave," he said. "L.A. 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. Manhattan is like Beverly Hills. And the soul of New York has moved to Brooklyn, where everything new and exciting seems to be."

Not for nothing, Baldwin later was handcuffed for mouthing off to police writing him up for bicycling the wrong way down Fifth Avenue. In a Twitter rant, the actor reportedly said the city is "a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign."

So, Alec is getting out and trying to sell his 840-square-foot, one-bedroom condo at the Devonshire building on East 10th Street. The listing description says the place was completely renovated in 2012 by the building's developer and rarely used by its owner.

It features:
  • Four-inch oak flooring.
  • Eat-in kitchen.
  • Waterworks fixtures.
  • Appliances by Sub-Zero, Wolf and Bosch.
  • Bathroom with Calcutta marble countertops.
  • Two-person tub.
Getting rid of the pied-a-terre is just the first step in Baldwin's divorce from the city. Our pals at Curbed say he also owns a penthouse, and the unit next door at the Devonshire.
