NEW YORK (AP) — Alec Baldwin says he misses the days when New Yorkers signaled their appreciation of celebrities briefly and politely while taking care to maintain privacy.

The 55-year-old actor writes in New York magazine (http://vult.re/1doIwS0 ) that he "probably" needs to move out of the nation's largest city.

Baldwin says he has a happy home for the first time in his adult life. He says he's considering Los Angeles, living insulated behind a gate with his wife and their child.

A lot of the article deals with comments that Baldwin says were misquoted or misinterpreted. Among other things, he details strongly worded evidence that he's not homophobic.

Baldwin says he realizes he "could have done things differently."

He apologizes if he's "offended anyone along the way."
