Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

This rock is on a farm in New Jersey. It might be a meteorite, but there's no fusion crust and it strongly resembles a granite boulder. The shape is typical of a rocks rounded by abrasion with other rocks in a glacier.
  
What is it?

It's probably a rock from Canada that was deposited in New Jersey by a glacier - what geologists call a glacial erratic.
