NY P.L. 245 defines "public lewdness" as exposing "the private or intimate parts of [the] body in a lewd manner or commit[ting] any other lewd act (a) in a public place, or (b) in private premises under cir***stances in which [the person] may readily be observed from either a public place or from other private premises, and with intent that he be so observed." Article 245 - Penal Law - Offenses Against Public Sensibilities
If you have a particularly prudish neighbor or if someone sees you and want's to complain, the local authorities could issue a summons, but it would be a tough case. There could be a local ordinance.
