i'd guess at a desaturated sunset pic. you can see the streetlights and IFC floodlights are switched on so it must be close to dark.

Notice the street lights are turned on. Probably the photo was taken at dusk.

Why don't you actually check the thread?

Fog is common in the spring, but not during this time of year.
