Are NY Workers' Compensation Benefits Taxable?

NO!!!   If you are receiving workers' comp benefits in NY then note that your benefits are generally not taxable for income tax purposes.  If you are receiving SSD though those benefits are taxable, and you will receive a 1099 from the Federal Government.  There are situations where your social security disability benefits are lowered due to workers' comp but you pay tax in the whole social security amount - something called a back door tax - so you should definitely speak with an SSD attorney to get your answers regarding whether to apply to SSD benefits.
