Eastern Tiger Salamanders live in NY too but their masses are huge blobs with usually 30 but sometimes even 100 or more eggs. I think it is a Jefferson's salamander egg sac which is the first thing that came to mind when I first saw the picture. According to Sherman Bishops book the average mass has 16 eggs but sometimes females will lay all their eggs in one mass which may contain over 200 eggs. It also says that they breed in March and early April which would be now. I'm thinking it belongs to Ambystoma jeffersonianum.
