Prince Rare Video ... Out in Daylight!!!

Prince hopped and skipped across a New York City sidewalk Monday ... in broad daylight!

The nocturnal Purple One scampered away from our photog outside a Central Park hotel while toting his trademark cane.

Our guy didn't have time to spit out a question, but we've been thinking about it and are hard-pressed to come up with a good query. You got one question -- what would you ask Prince?
