After taping the Letterman show, the president returned to his midtown Manhattan hotel and quietly emerged a while later in gym clothes and a baseball cap. His destination: the church across the street for some basketball with his aides.

President Obama exercised his political power Monday evening by shooting some hoops in a Manhattan church — less than 24 hours before he makes his U.N. General Assembly debut that’ll include a meeting Tuesday with the Israeli and Palestinian leaders about stalled Mideast peace negotiations.

The President will be making a speech on the environment at the UN.
