Italian Wall Lizard Populations

Hello,
I mostly herp in the NY/NJ area tracking down Wall Lizard populations. I have managed to find them in 4 of the 5 boroughs as well as NY state, CT, MO & NJ. I have absolutely fallen in love with these little guys in the past year or so since I first saw them in Westbury, NY. I am mainly trying to track down the population in Manhattan to concur all 5 boroughs and more populations in the boroughs. (Too many in Nassau & Suffolk County to count) Would anyone happen to know where the Manhattan population is or any others in the NY Metro area? Below is a list of all the population I know of, any additional info would be greatly appreciated.

-Mnt Laurel Municipal Area & Adjacent Neighborhood Verified

-Bucks County, not sure where though.

New York State
-Hasting-On-Hudson Verified
-Much of Central Nassau County (Garden City, Hempstead, Westbury) Verified

This is a map of what info/ observations I've gathered so far.
Green= I have physically seen it (mostly just a way for me to keep track of where I've been).
Blue=Known population or suspected population.

Carl, this is really great information you've gathered. If you don't mind, can you please start taking photographs of individuals you encounter and upload them to www.herpmapper.org/submit? That way they're in a formalized database that biologists can request data directly from. I'm hoping to track down some of these critters myself the next time I'm in the northeast.
