This site gives us a New York State death index for the years 1880 to 1956. It is presented on Archive.org compliments of the Reclaim the Records project.
The landing page presents you with a thumbnail image of the death index for each year in the collection. Clicking on the thumbnail will take you to a reader so you can see the entire document. That document can be shared and downloaded.
