Yeah it was probably one of those Chinese lanterns tied in a triangle that can travel faster than sound and not leave a sonic boom.
Sadly no photos. Happened way too fast.
Ah I did get it. Took about 20 pics with my iphone and didn't think I captured it until I enlarged one. It's only in one though as it was traveling at a pretty good clip.

Well I saw one about 15 minutes ago while walking the dog. Beautiful blue sky here in NYC. Dog is doing his thing, sniffing around and I'm just looking up at the nice blue sky when this orb-like object comes "drifting" across the sky. I say drifting because it was dead silent while the usual aircraft alining for approach to Kennedy and La Guardia were all flying above. This was higher than the planes on approach. It was highly reflective and appeared to be tumbling. It was oblong with no real defined shape that I could discern. I'd say it was a balloon, but the planes gave me perspective, so I could gage it was higher and father from me than the planes, which would make it rather large from my perspective.
No pics as it came and left suddenly. Well that's all I have
