We were unable to find a specific statute in New York that addresses the issue and one site reports that there is no legally mandated age as to when a child can be left alone in New York. This does not mean that a statute or other law does not exist for New York but we did not locate a statute

Other States do have laws addressing the subject and there are general guidelines that could apply for all States.
