A New York man appeared to shove an NYPD officer and flee on foot after being stopped at gunpoint just blocks away from Manhattan's Central Park on Wednesday afternoon, according to a video obtained by Fox News Digital. 

Three officers can be seen approaching a red Toyota sedan on E 59th St. between Park and Lexington Ave with guns drawn and motioning for the occupants to get out. 

"Show me your hands! Get out of the car!" the officers can be heard yelling as they opened the doors.
