President and Mrs. Obama will spend the afternoon in New York City on Saturday, the White House announced Friday night.

The First Couple will pay a "personal visit" to New York, the White House said, providing no additional elaboration beyond its initial guidance.

The R & R comes before a busy week for the president, which will see him travel to Saudi Arabia and Egypt early in the week, before finishing up in France for a remembrance of the anniversary of the D-Day attacks on Normandy.
