You need to speak to a NY attorney. In NJ such a charge would be an Ordinance and would not appear on a CCH. However in NJ it would count as an arrest and depending on an application question would have to be disclosed. Again in NJ this would not appear on your CCH are be found one normal background check. But talk to a NY lawyer.
If you were acquitted after trial you have no record and you need not expunge or seal anything it happens automatically.
If acquitted, you have no record.
