Training, Twitter, trophy tours and temperatures in the eighties... the second day of #ArsenalNYC was just as busy and rewarding as the first.

It got underway while the players were digesting their breakfast as not one but two Arsenal trophies headed out on a sightseeing tour.

The FA Cup crossed Brooklyn Bridge and caught up with fans in Times Square and Central Park before heading back to base. And the FA Women's Cup wasn't far behind, taking in New York's famous landmarks and turning heads in Manhattan.

Training was top of the agenda for Arsène Wenger and his team with Saturday's friendly against New York Red Bulls homing into view.

It was a tough work-out in high temperatures as the Arsenal squad continued to put the fitness foundations in place for the 2014/15 campaign.

After lunch, Wojciech Szczesny, Kieran Gibbs, Mathieu Flamini and Jack Wilshere attended an Emirates soccer clinic for 60 children, coaching the kids and taking part in games.

Aaron Ramsey was among those who met fans at a PUMA event at Grand Central Station - where the FA Cup made another, rapturously-received appearance - while Chuba Akpom, Kris Olsson and Gedion Zelalem enjoyed an eye-opening front-row view of NFL team New York Giants in training.

Back at the team hotel, seven players took part in a Twitter Takeover with the Manhattan skyline their dramatic backdrop.

And day two ended with a cruise on the Hudson River as players and staff took in the sights.
