Back in the Big Apple! Melania Trump made a rare foray from her Trump Tower residence on Tuesday as she stepped out to run some morning errands in the Big Apple, exclusive DailyMail.com photos show

The former first lady to have stepped out alone – with the exception of her Secret Service detail –  to run some errands on Manhattan’s Upper East Side 

Fashion forward: The 51-year-old kept it casual but chic in a beige Burberry blazer and all-white ensemble that she matched with Louboutin pointy-toe flats that retail for $645 and a $26,000 Hermes Kelly bag 

After being picked up outside her Fifth Avenue residence, she was taken to an address on East 76th Street where she stayed for about two hours

Melania was flanked by her security detail as she left the Fifth Avenue residence in a four-car Secret Service convoy just after 8:15am.

She arrived at a private residence on East 76th Street shortly after, where she stayed for two hours before making her way back to Trump Tower. 

Her return to New York City comes just one day after her husband Donald Trump was spotted arriving at their Fifth Avenue residence. 

The former president traveled back to his home state on Sunday after a speaking at a rally in Sarasota, Florida the previous evening. 

He was seen wearing a white MAGA hat as he waved to a group of supporters that had gathered outside the building. Melania and the couple’s son Barron, however, were nowhere to be seen. 

The Trumps were largely based in Manhattan before Donald was elected president in 2016.

It marked a rare foray into the Big Apple for Melania who has been living in Florida with husband Donald Trump since they left the White House earlier this year

The couple however decided to relocate to the president’s resort in Mar-a-Lago after leaving the White House in January and have maintained a relatively low profile since. 

In his upcoming book, author Michael Wolff claims Donald and Melania Trump ‘are treated like zoo animals’ at the Florida resort and often eat alone at a roped off table. 

According to Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency – published on July 13- the former first couple eat alone while 50 or 60 tables of diners gawp and stare at the patio restaurant. 

Wolff also claims it is unclear how often Melania actually stays at the resort, or whether she is living with her husband. 

‘Maybe Melania lives here’, he writes. ‘For four years in the White House, it was never quite clear how much time she was spending at the White House or in a house in Maryland where she had settled her parents.  

Melania famously did not move into the White House immediately in January 2017, choosing instead to stay with son Baron in New York until the end of his school year. 

She eventually made the move over to Washington full time and remained their until the end of Trump’s presidency. 

Aside from her security detail and her assistant (wearing a yellow dress) Melania appeared to be flying solo during her trip uptown

Trump spent part of Sunday golfing at his New Jersey golf club in Bedminster before coming back to his New York City apartment. 

Officers from the NYPD armed response unit were on hand as he walked into the famous building which still has round-the-clock armed security despite Trump spending the majority of his time at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida or at his New Jersey club.  

‘It’s no secret he is splitting his time between Bedminster and Manhattan,’ said a source familiar with his movements to DailyMail.com ‘He’ll be spending a couple of days at Trump Tower before going back to New Jersey.’

His office says he will be making a ‘significant announcement about his efforts to protect Americans’ First Amendment rights’ at Bedminster on Wednesday.

Donald and Melania’s trip to New York City also comes just days after the Trump Organization’s chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg was indicted on tax crimes involving company executives.

Weisselberg is accused of failing to pay tax on $1.76 million of perks since 2005, according to the 25-page indictment.

The investigation has cost millions of dollars but could yield just tens of thousands of dollars in back tax. 

Weisselberg was indicted last week on ‘sweeping and audacious’ tax and fraud charges, after prosecutors accused him of taking a total of $1.7 million in perks and compensation that the longtime CFO and the Trump Organization did not declare in tax filings. 

He was paraded in court wearing handcuffs on Thursday before pleading not guilty during a hearing at New York Supreme Court.

The Trump Organization was also charged in a 15-count indictment that included charges of conspiracy, grand larceny, tax fraud and falsifying business accounts. The maximum prison sentence is 15 years, but Weisselberg would likely get less, if any time at all. 

Trump slammed the indictment last Thursday claiming New York had ‘taken over’ the ‘witch hunt’ against him and called the charges against Weisselberg a ‘disgrace’ motivated by politics.

‘The political Witch Hunt by the Radical Left Democrats, with New York now taking over the assignment, continues. It is dividing our Country like never before!’ he said in a statement after Weisselberg pleaded not guilty to charges that he failed to pay taxes for years on a company car, apartment and school fees for his grandchildren.   

The investigation has cost millions of dollars but could yield just tens of thousands of dollars in back tax. 

Trump also spoke with ABC News’  John Santucci in a phone interview and called Weisselberg a ‘tremendous person’. He repeatedly said it was a ‘shame’ and that he ‘couldn’t believe it’.  

He also said New York prosecutors want Weisselberg to ‘lie against Trump’ and flip on the former president. 

Weisselberg was seen back at work Monday after the Fourth of July weekend – just days after being brought to a Manhattan courtroom in handcuffs following his indictment. 

He was captured in images first revealed by DailyMail.com the day before the indictment came down – with the before and after images buttressing claims he will not ‘flip’ on the Trump and the company he has led for decades.
