Manchester City star Jack Grealish jets off to New York after England’s World Cup exit as he tours Home Alone 2 spots in the Big Apple, including Plaza Hotel, Central Park and Rockefeller Center
Jack Grealish channeled his inner Kevin McCallister as he toured some of the famous locations from Home Alone 2 during his visit to New York.
The Manchester City star has been flown to the Big Apple following England’s elimination in the quarter-finals of the World Cup in France last week.
And the 27-year-old is making the most of his free time before returning to England to report for duty in the city ahead of the Premier League restart.
Pep Guardiola’s side play Liverpool in the Carabao Cup on Thursday before taking on Leeds in their first top-flight game after the international break on December 28.
Grealish is currently in the US, where he has been visiting his Instagram story to entertain his 5.6 million followers throughout his journey.
And he’s focused solely on visiting some of the famous Home Alone 2: Lost locations in New York, with Christmas just a week away.
Following in Kevin’s footsteps, Grealish stopped by to see the Park Plaza Hotel where the main character was staying after boarding the wrong flight.
Posting a snap of the hotel, Grealish said: “If you know me you know how much I love Christmas and Home Alone.

“So absolutely buzzing that I could come down to New York at Christmas time and basically see everyone [sic] where Kevin went. The Plaza Kevins Hotel.”
He then traveled to the Central Park Ice Rink, where escaped convicts Harry and Marv were plotting to rob a toy store on Christmas Eve.
Grealish captioned the snap: “Little tour of Central Park. Harry & Marv ice rink.”
The ex-Aston Villa man then traveled to Bethesda Terrace where Kevin made a run from the two villains in the park.
Grealish uploaded a picture of the patio and said, “A man like Kevin on the run in the park.”
And he ended the night with the sight of the famous Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree.
Anyone who has seen the hit film will know that Kevin is reunited with his mother towards the end of the film.
It remains to be seen if Grealish racked up a $967 room service bill during his time in New York.
Kevin drew his father’s ire at the end of the film after using his credit card to squirt candy and ice cream.
