Generally speaking, it is legal in NY to postdate a check. It would be a crime if there were not sufficient funds in the account to cover the check prior to the payment date.
Technically when you write a future date on a check, it does not become a negotiable instrument until that date. Instead it is a promissory note. However, practically speaking most banks disregard the date on the check and negotiate the check.
