Think I found it Lloyd! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_Point_Energy_Center
This is the name of a nuclear power plant in update new york.
I kind of doubt this was around when this tie chain was made.
Apparently neither of you guys read Vicki's reply...obviously it's not from a nuclear power plant, but if you bothered to read the history the answer is there, Indian Point Amusement Park, 1920s-1950s.
Good find, Vicki!
And at the end of this url is more info about Indian Point.
Note: The Indian on the left is an image of the Indian head nickel's head. I think.
Another reply I made was timed out and doesn't show. The nearby town was Buchanan, NY. Indian Point was a point of land on the Hudson River.
I wonder if anybody ever metal detected the park, especially where the amusements were located. Probably fenced off due to the nuke reactors.
Unless you want to glow in the dark, it be best to stay away !!
Thanks again for the help.
The Indian Point Amusement Park (1923) was located here before the reactors were built (1962). According to an article boys used to dive into the Hudson River where steamboats brought day-trippers from NYC. Girls tossed coins into the water that the boys retrieved, and were later returned to the girl who tossed it, thereby making their acquaintances. Steps leading to the old pool and several overgrown ball fields exist to this day. One reactor has already closed and the last two will be shut down in 2021.
Great info Tom !
