what are the laws in new york regarding swords

This answer was rated:

what are the laws in new york regarding swords

You want to look at New York Penal Law 265.01:

The only type of sword that is expressly prohibited under NYS law is a cane sword. But as you can see, any dangerous or deadly weapon that is carried under circumstances which would indicate an intention to use it unlawfully, could get you arrested.

So if you're hoping to be a collector, there is absolutely nothing illegal or inappropriate with having them on display in your house. If you were looking to carry it around outdoors for no good purpose, you could end up in trouble.
