You may. You would have to prove that the discrimination and/or harassment was "because of" a protected reason (race, gender, sexuality, religion, age, reporting wage/hour violations, etc.)

Most employment in New York is "at will". In order to have a valid hostile work environment or discrimination claim, you have to belong to a protected class, e.g. the employer is harassing you because of your age, sex, race, religion, etc. You may consider consulting with a lawyer specializing in employment law, who will analyze the details of your case and evaluate your chances.
The answer really hinges on why your supervisors are targeting you. If it is due to some form of discrimination or retaliation then you may have a viable claim.
