I belive this is the first Horned Grebe for New York County for 2018. The sighting hasn't been reviewed so it won't show up on eBird yet. Below are Sunday's checklist (with record shot) and a custom Google Maps showing the locations of the grebe seen this past Sunday and today in the driving rain shortly after 4:30pm. On eBird, for New York County, it is listed as *RARE*.
