Unfortunately, Leo still remains unsighted as of now. But, while trying to track him down on my behalf, Eric did see a few other interesting people.
One afternoon, while he was out looking for Wolf of Wall Street filming, he stopped by to check out 30 Rock filming on the Plaza. 30 Rock filming is kind of old hat anymore, as we've seen almost the entire regular cast already (and Tina Fey countless times). However, one we haven't seen while filming is Alec Baldwin. I saw him at the Comedy Awards in 2011, but we've been wanting to catch him in some sort of 30 Rock capacity. Given that Eric works merely a block from 30 Rock, you wouldn't think this would be difficult, but Alec has managed to elude us for four years now. That is, until a couple of weeks ago, when Eric finally caught him, filming a scene with Tina Fey on the Plaza! Success!
He knows he's busted. We finally found you, Alec!

He also saw a few other 30 Rock folks, including John Lutz, Judah Friedlander and Tracy Morgan, who he said spent much of his time sitting with his shirt unbuttoned (it was quite hot outside) and (jokingly) yelling at his entourage about the unfairness of them being able to eat while he can't.

If you are a 30 Rock fan, in this scene the car driving Jack (Alec Baldwin) hits a stroller and somehow Tracy ends up holding the baby, who he carries over to Frank (Judah Friedlander). So, keep an eye out for that scene this fall!
Tracy is holding a baby!
That's Mrs. Obama getting into the car - you can see her through the window!
As for the original filming that started this celeb sighting spree, Leonardo DiCaprio may yet remain at large, but Eric did catch director Martin Scorsese and Matthew McConaughey.
Hey there, Mr. McConaughey.
Back view of Matthew, if you like that sort of thing. Eric said he's surprisingly short.
Not bad, right? And the Celebrity Sightings list keeps growing! I must say, Eric pretty much has it down to an art form by this point!
