12:11am small greenish streak moving very fast through the sky over Lower Manhattan, traveling west

At approximately 12:11am on 3/31/09 I was standing on the north side of Houston Street between Avenue A and 1st Avenue in the Lower East Side of New York City and was looking southwest up in the sky at several recently built condo towers. I suddenly saw a small greenish streak moving very fast through the sky, traveling west. I saw it for maybe 1 second and before it disappeared. I initially thought it could have been a shooting star/meteoroid but then thought that it would have been surprising to see a meteoroid so clearly within the confines of a major city and all the lights.
