Jesse L. Martin is adamant he will never leave his adopted New York and move to Los Angeles for the sake of his career, because he is so in love with the Big Apple.
The former Law & Order star grew up in Virginia, but has been a resident of New York City ever since he accepted a place at New York University's prestigious Tisch School of the Arts Theatre Program.
Martin is proud to own a luxury apartment in Manhattan and is determined to remain in his adopted hometown permanently.
He tells the New York Post, "(I am not an) L.A. guy. God bless them out there but that vibration is not for me. I'm a New Yorker. TriBeCa. To own a New York apartment is like owning a big shiny badge."
