    Here is the meal period requirement for New York.

    Unless there is a safety reason, or other reason the employer would not want you to leave the premises (such as the length of your meal period and the geographic location of your work site to eating establishments), they would be hard-pressed to find a legal justification for not allowing you to leave the work site for your meal period.
