70. Definitely a crowd.

What. Are. These?

Answer: Arbit, i must agree. These are what are known as tri-point (hence the lame title-clue) markers. They are (rough) points where 3 states in the USA meet. This is the reason why NYC is often referred to (in pop culture usually) as the 'tri-state area'.
The above 2 are the NY-Connecticut-Massachusetts and the Rhode Island-Connecticut-Massachusetts tri-point markers.
