Welcome!

If you were on the west coast, I would say its a Giant Sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum). There are Sequoias growing on the east coast so maybe you are lucky enough to know one. Smiling

Could it be a Bald Cypress? The growth pattern looks not quite right.

I think Bald Cypress looks more like a Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens).

I believe the cones are wrong for Cryptomeria japonica (thye should be spiky). Your photo is showing male flowers only

The cones on the ID plant do look spiky.

I'm squinting at my computer screen and I think you may be right. Spiky. Japanese Cedar. Smiling
