Blue Toadflax?

Just in time for NYC Wildflower week, I found myself looking at waves of this delicate purple flower beneath the flowering beach plumbs and the closest I can get to an ID right now is Blue Toad Flax (Nuttallanthus canadensis). It would be sweet if I'm right because the plant is a native, but I'm not sure that it isn't a common lookalike weed. One thing I do know; it doesn't mind sand.
