Jennifer Garner new york  jeans sweater the waverly inn

After a quick trip to Washington D.C. for a press conference on early childhood education and child care, actress Jennifer Garner went to New York City to do an interview with Fox and Friends on the subject.

Still, she got some downtime at a dinner at Waverly Inn. Wearing jeans, a black blouse, flats ... and with hardly any makeup on, Ben Affleck's wifey looked stunning as she arrived back to her NYC hotel.

On Fox, Jen talked about her cause but also endorsed fellow actor Alec Baldwin in his potential run for mayor of New York City! Baldwin is reportedly considering the position, and Jen says both her and hubby Ben Affleck would support Alec. Says Jen: "I stand up for Alec Baldwin."
