Should be the curvature of the earth. 35 miles should be enough to see it if clear enough.

It may be 30+ miles driving but that distance is irrelevant to how far the buildings are from you. If you measure on google earth from Greenwich Point Park directly to midtown Manhattan in a straight line it's about 26 miles away.

It was only a half jump from what I can gather; which it will then finish off once the core jumps, but good spot!
