Best friends and X-Men: Days of Future Past co-stars Patrick Stewart, 73, and Ian McKellen, 74, have starred together in two brilliant Broadway plays this year, but perhaps their biggest impact on pop culture has occurred on the very streets of New York City. And while Stewart and McKellen’s friendship may crackle on stage in “Waiting for Godot” and “No Man’s Land”, their Big Apple exploits have been flooding the Internet with images of merriment and brotherhood.

Stewart and McKellen took advantage of their temporary stay in New York to visit the many fascinating and inspiring landmarks of the great American City. While visting the infamous Coney Island, they stopped at a souvenir vendor booth and impulsively had their portraits printed on three t-shirts. These shirts are now being auctioned to help raise money for City Harvest, a food rescue organization centered in New York City. City Harvest helps feed nearly two million New Yorkers facing hunger each year with more than 500 community food programs.
To bid on these rare t-shirts and help a great cause, please visit http://www.ebay.com/rpp/givingworks/Gogo-Didi-Do-NYC/.
