I am living in Belgium (Europa) and I was visiting the One World Trade Center in New York on the 29th of May 2019.

I was on the floor 100, around 11AM, looking to north (direction of Empire State Building), when I saw something looking like an helicopter, flying just next the top of the Empire State building (left of it, when looking from the One World Observatory).

I found this strange, because I was thinking that nothing could fly over New York since 09/11. To check if it was a helicopter from the police or the army (it was during the Memorial week) I took a picture and when I looked at it, I was a bit surprised to see something looking like a rose flying donut.

I don’t know what is was, probably just an advertising donut balloon ??? 5 to 10 seconds later (necessary time to look at the first picture), I decided to take another one but the flying object had disappeared.

Looking on the internet, I found nothing about it.

Picture was taken with a Canon PowerShot SX730HS, max optical zoom (*40), 400 ISO.

Picture will follow through email.
