Stone tool from Greene county NY

Reader Sarah writes (in part):
Attached is a rock that I found on my property last fall...This rock was found around an area that we call a knapping station on our property. I reside in Greene county NY [near the] Athens NY Paleo Flint Mine. My question is could this rock be a point? You can see where flaking was done.

Not an arrowhead but perhaps a blade of some kind or a scraper.

That looks very similar to this tool, from Orange County, NY.
