Leonardo DiCaprio can now add “helpful New Yorker” to his long list of accolades.

On Friday, the star was walking his dog near the Hudson River when he was approached by an elderly couple. And from the looks of the photo, they weren’t seeking a selfie or an autograph. Instead, they apparently needed help getting around New York City.

“He was walking along with a friend and his dog, just strolling and right before sunset and an old couple was looking around and he walked up to them,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE. “It looked like they needed help.

“Then he pulled out his phone and showed them something on his phone,” the onlooker says. “Then he reached out and pointed them in the direction to go and they went on their way.”

DiCaprio was wearing a newsboy cap and sunglasses, which probably helped him go incognito, but this couple did not seem to notice they were talking to an Oscar winner.

“People had been asking him for selfies but this couple didn’t seem to know who he was,” the onlooker adds.

Later on Friday, DiCaprio made an important stop at the United Nations to speak about climate change and premiere the trailer of his new project, Before the Flood.

Just one day earlier, the actor and environmentalist was spotted on a PDA-heavy date with his model-girlfriend Nina Agdal. The two enjoyed a romantic meal on Thursday night at Gotham Bar and Grill in New York City’s Greenwich Village, and a source told PEOPLE the pair couldn’t get enough of each other.

“They were kissing,” the source said. “Like, right out in the open at the table.”
