With his head down, the former host covered his face partially with an orange hat.?
He also wore a white collared shirt underneath a navy sweater and suit jacket.?
It is one of the first times Rose has been seen since he was fired on November 21 from CBS after women came forward with allegations.
Rose was initially suspended from the network on November 20 when the Washington Post published the accounts of eight women who claim they were sexually harassed or assaulted by the journalist.?
That was followed by additional allegations from five other women.?
He joined CBS in 2012, hosting CBS This Morning and appearing on 60 Minutes while also occasionally guest hosting the CBS Evening News.

Rose had signed a lengthy contract extension in 2015 with the network.
PBS quickly followed suit, stating: 'In light of yesterday’s revelations, PBS has terminated its relationship with Charlie Rose and cancelled distribution of his programs.'
The network, which has aired Rose's show since 1991, also noted: 'PBS expects all the producers we work with to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect.'?
A cameraman caught Rose returning to his apartment Monday night after he had been suspended on November 20.
When the cameraman asked if Rose wanted to say anything to his accusers, Rose said 'What?' and started laughing.
'You want to say anything to the accusers - the people who are accusing you of all these wrongdoings?' tasked the cameraman.

'It's not wrongdoings,' said Rose as he turned into his building.
He made that comment just hours after his apology in response to the allegations run in the Post, and when writer Amy Brittain inquired about the disparate tone struck by Rose his publicist said: 'Charlie Rose sticks by his statement Amy. No comment on the below.'
News of these firings likely brings to an end the storied career of one of the most acclaimed newsmen of his generation, with Rose picking up a Peabody in 2013 and the Walter Cronkite Excellence in Journalism Award two years later in 2015.?
Among the claims being made by the women are that Rose would grope their breasts, buttocks and genitals without their consent, make lewd telephone calls, and walk around naked in their presence without warning.
The women who have come forward with these claims about Rose, 75, were all between the ages of 21 and 37 at the time of the alleged misconduct and working for the legendary television host.
Two former employees said that the young female assistants and producers Rose would constantly surround himself with were known as 'Charlie's Angels.'
In a lengthy statement in response to the expose, Rose did not deny all of the allegations being made by the women but said that he did not believe all of his accusers were 'accurate' in heir description of his offenses.
'It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed,' stated Rose.?
