HELP! Found this today while digging near an old beach path. Could it be a stone tool?

As someone who digs a lot of holes often, I've never come across something like this before. Found on the north shore of eastern Long Island. I have practiced flint knapping in my free time and it seems to have a lot of similar characteristics to some old stone tools I've seen. Flat bottom, flute in the center, flinted and chipped edges etc. I'm no expert though so I was hoping someone on this site could let me know if they think I may have found something interesting here OR just another oddly broken glacial rock. Seems like the left hand peice at the bottom had broken off long ago buy you can see where the break happened and if the piece were still there, it would be pretty symmetrical. Let me know what you think.

Looks nothing like any Indian artifact I have ever seen, especially from the photos you didn't post!!
