Silverly helium balloon-like object

I was on may way to the subway (Manhattan #6 line), walking along 68th Street beween 2nd and 3rd Avenues when I noticed a round silvery ball shaped object very high above the city against the blue sky. It seemed to be moving slowly northeast. The bright sun was reflecting off its surface. One could say it appeared to be floating or drifting. It could have definetly been a small helium balloon caught in the air currents. My impression is that it was at least as large as a basketball. It was way too high to determine what it was.
