The 'Glee' star admits he always gets worried about getting lost on the underground train network when he's in the city, despite living in 'The Big Apple' a few years ago.
Matthew - who was raised in Orange County - said: "I'm back in New York for a while, and I guess I'm nervous about the subway. I just want to make sure I still remember how to get around. I got lost yesterday, and it was nerve-racking tying to be the great New Yorkers that I once was."
Although he has trouble on public transport, Matthew has no trouble on foot and has revealed he loves running.
The 34-year-old actor isn't a huge fan of the gym but he loves getting leg muscles pumping on the road and usually runs up to 40 miles a week.
He told People magazine: "I probably only get to the gym about once a week, but I'm a big runner. I run about 40 miles every week. I just can't run on a treadmill."
As well as playing teacher Will Schuester in 'Glee', Matthew is about to release his second album 'Where It All Began'.
