bright light of oval shaped object hovers in sky over Manhattan in early morning --lasted about half hour

This is a repeated sighting for me, at around the same time early in the morning on clear air mornings at dawn. I have a clear view of the Manhattan sky over the Hudson River. I noticed a very bright light directly over the Manhattan skyline. It seemed brighter than a star and closer. A star (far away) was behind it. It was much tinier than the big light. The light object did not move and remained in one spot, shining very brightly. I could not discern a shape, but it seemed oval like. It stayed for a long time in the sky. When I checked back at 6.07am it was gone. I wondered what it could be that would be static and shining so bright, and figure it might be a UFO or a very bright satellite, but that didn't make sense since it seemed to hover in one place in the sky. I have a photo of the bright light.
