No. The legal age of majority for New York is 18. Parents can file a petition in NY Family Court requesting the minor be returned to their custody. The process is simple and always granted unless there is a record of abuse or neglect of the minor child by the parents. Once an order has been granted the parents submit it to the law enforcement agency that has jurisdiction and the minor will be taken into custody. Any adult who knowingly allows a minor to reside in their home when the minor's parents object to the situation is subject to criminal and civil action.
