I think this is right but it was a surprise - Nyssa biflora

PlantFiles doesn`t have an image yet: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/80772/ so if this is correct, PF could use an image or 2.

Let's wait to see if VV has an opinion on this one. I see fruits in groups of 3, which is more typical of Nyssa sylvatica. ("biflora" would seem to indicate paired flowers/fruits)

I think VV is garden touring. What you say makes sense. Do we agree on Nyssa?

It does look like a Nyssa sp. to me.

The reason why I thought N. biflora was the OP's reference to coastal valley. The fruit is set in 3s so biflora doesn't make sense. I don't think it's N. aquatica based on leaf shape. This leaves N. sylvatica.

If it's on Staten Island (if it is indeed still an island at the moment), then I'd agree with Nyssa sylvatica also.
