You're welcome! They are interesting plants! I'm amazed at how many species of it there are.
That's definitely it! Thank you so much for identifying. We were visiting the NY area from out of town and had never seen this plant before.
I'm not 100% sure on the species but it's definitely a parasitic plant that feeds on the roots of other plants. I'd suggest looking at the plants in your area from the Orobanchaceae family.
