The star seemed in good spirits as he carried some paper shopping bags having indulged in a spot of retail therapy.
Eddie also donned a blue face mask while walking down the street – New York state announced last month that all vaccinated patrons no longer have to wear face coverings outdoors.

The actor has been hard at work filming upcoming American crime thriller The Good Nurse in Connecticut, which tells the tale behind the pursuit and capture of American serial killer Charles Cullen.
Eddie takes on the leading role as Cullen, a former nurse who is currently serving 18 consecutive life sentences in New Jersey State Prison after he confessed to murdering up to 40 patients during his 16-year career.
The Good Nurse is based on the book by author Charles Graeber and tells the true story of the capture of Cullen who operated across nine different hospitals in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Jessica Chastain stars in the film as a nurse who worked alongside Cullen and risked her life to help bring him to justice.
The film will also star NFL player turned actor Nnamdi Asomugha, who is set to portray one of the lead police detectives on the case, Danny Baldwin.
After his crimes were exposed, Cullen was arrested in December 2003, charged with one count of murder and one count of attempted murder.
