We found this mark as described, set in the south face of a gray-painted, curved concrete wall partially surrounding the southeast corner (Hudson & Clarkson Streets) of the James J. Walker ballfield. The benchmark was hard to spot beneath the thick layer of gray paint. The paint also makes the stamping difficult to distinguish, but with some effort it can still be read.

A report on the condition of this survey mark has been submitted to NGS, along with the following recovery note:

Recovered in good condition. Concrete wall and disk have been painted over but designation is still legible. Autonomous (non-corrected) handheld GPS coordinates for the station are 40 43 46.43(N) 074 00 23.96(W).
