Is former Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker jonesing to leave the city?

Getting away from the paparazzi flashes would be great, but SJP said ultimately, "I can't imagine living in seclusion. We flirted with it. We went outside the city and troubled all these realtors and stood in these homes and fantasized, and then I kept picturing nine o'clock at night and...

"The beautiful thing about New York is, you have to expose yourself to other people the minute you step outside the door," the 46-year-old mom of three said. "There is no choice. And I love that."

And speaking of hands-on, Sarah even brought along little James to the fashion photo shoot.
