The temperature was close to freezing. I walked from my office at lunchtime over towards 42nd Street and all the way west, towards the Intrepid. Needless to say, the area was deserted - no people, just the birds and me. The sky was kind of gray, as if snow were on the way, so I wasn't exoecting much ... I didn't notice the streams of light in the sky until I got way out at the end of the pier. And there were helicopters!
It was so cold walking back (of course I didn't think to bring gloves or bus money) but I felt I might have captured something worthwhile so I was happy.
I'm thankful for the appreciation.
So far as this being a horizon line or a skyline .... it's hard to find any view in NYC that doesn't have buildings in it.

Beautiful image. I love the way those rays light up the water and give such stark contrast to the line of buildings.

Striking light bursting forth from the clouds. Dramatic scene. The helicopter adds something extra. Personally I would describe this as a skyline rather then a horizon but heck who really cares. It's lovely.8

I LOVE it when the sun does this. That helicopter seems caught in one of the rays.

I love the low key approach. That helicopter. Or is it a bird? LOL
