This is about 1.5" long. It was found in Westchester ny. It seems to have some fossil marks, but the holes make me wonder if it is lava rock. I think meteors are much smoother and heavier, and no fossils.

There may be bits of bivalve shell there, i can't see too clearly, but this is certainly not a meteorite. 

Most of the holes in this rock have been bored into it by something, possibly a sponge.

This looks like pegmatite material to Me.

The circular holes are where a mineral has weathered out, there are a couple left in place in the second picture.

The square white area looks like a feldspar crystal and the red spots look like garnets.

I'm not sure there are volcanic rocks like that in NY, though others would know better than I do -unless it was brought in and dumped there by someone.

In pic 4 it is very suggestive of slag. Was there was ever a smelter in that area in the past? But the other pics make me doubt that - it's got an odd color and crystalline appearance for slag, though a crystalline structure is not unusual for slag (I've got some such pieces).

I keep finding black rocks in same area that look like lava rock. See attached below.
