    Lithic point, perhaps?

    Found in Hoboken, NJ, on the shore. (Across from Manhattan)

    Hard to make out the details in pictures.
    Seems to have the traits of an ancient stone tool style, ... more a scraper than a point.
    Flat bottom with small secondary chips forming cutting edges along the lower edges.

    Try Google "limace artifact" and see if it looks similar.

    Looks natural to me. There are newer breaks on the edges of the flake giving it the appearance of being serrated. You can tell the newer chips by the lighter color, where the natural patina of the rock is darker.

    That said, the Indians did make and use a lot of simple flake blades that look pretty similar to your rock.

    It looks natural, however if it has signs of actual knapping, the it's either a knife or scraper. The serrated looking edge, if it was knapped, would lead me to lean more towards a hand knife. Better pic's would help... "D"

    "I have fought against the people of the North because I believed they were seeking to wrest from the South its dearest rights. But I have never cherished toward them bitter or vindictive feelings, and I have never seen the day when I did not pray for them." General Robert E. Lee

    "My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me, that is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave." General Stonewall Jackson
