    This situation sounds miserable. Unfortunately, there is no statute in NY state for legal emancipation of a minor. I'm putting a link on here that will give you more info on what you can do in NY, if you meet certain criteria.

      Bottom line, you can't move out unless your parents allow it. In the state of NY a minor can be considered emancipated if they live apart from their parents, are financially self-sufficient, etc....but, in order to live apart from your parents, mom and dad have to allow it. If not, then you're just a runaway minor. My advice would be to talk to your school counselor about the situation.
