After all of the 9/11 anniversary shows on TV tonight, I jumped on Google Earth to check out NYC. I then ended up remembering to look up a survey disk I found on the Statue of Liberty in January, so went to NGS’ website and did a coordinate search on Liberty Island but didn’t find my disk described. I did find the attached datasheet (PIDKV4410.pdf) and loved the 1980 Recovery Note by NOS, check it out…

My blurry pic (DSCN2500.JPG) of the disk I was looking for is also attached. It was stamped “United States Harbor Line Reference Mark” and was on the upper portion of the pedestal (as high as you can go without going to the torch, about 8-10 stories high), Southernmost corner I believe.
