They look remarkably like sea lions.

A Sea Lion can be VERY big. A thousand pounds or more. Out here, they don't come as far south as New York, although I did photograph one in Brooklyn who was probably a bit confused and read the map wrong.

I'm no seal expert...., So I wont hazard a guess. Most of the seals I see are Harbor Seals.
