The Practice actor, 47, currently lives in Los Angeles but admits he has been househunting in the Big Apple for the past two decades.
But he is adamant he won't uproot his life in Tinseltown unless his acting career takes him back to New York.
He tells the New York Post, "I miss this town. So great to be here, even for two days. I'd live here in a heartbeat if I could. I've tried moving here for 20 years. I started after the '94 earthquake but kept ending up on a plane heading to L.A. for work. Minute the wheels hit the Tarmac here I felt different. I miss going out at 10 at night. I miss talking to people, seeing people, seeing life.".
