Some of the most deer resistant shrubs for the New York area include:

Amorpha fruticosa (desert false indigo) - highly resistant, deciduous; Ceanothus herbaceus (Jersey tea) - highly resistant, deciduous; Cephalanthus occidentalis (common buttonbush) - moderately resistant, evergreen; Rhus aromatica (fragrant sumac) - highly resistant, deciduous; Symphoricarpos orbiculatus (coralberry) - moderately resistant, deciduous; Ptelea trifoliata (common hoptree) - highly resistant, deciduous.

Hope these suggestions are helpful.
