You will have to print and mail both returns.  Returns with no taxable income at the Federal level cannot be e-filed.  New York only has to be e-filed if it's possible to do that.  Your state return cannot be e-filed because you have no e-fileable Federal return.  you can print and file your state return without penalty.
