As far as I can tell, this is a Mountain Fetterbush (Pieris Floribunda) (or maybe it's: Eubotrys recurva. Good grief, the internet with all it's errors, is confusing today!) that got confused about when spring is and started to blossom. The blossoms on the Fetterbush are white, but these may be white when they open. The only problem? NY is not in the range of this plant, which should be found, say in the Appalachians, in the south-er east of where I am.
Another possibility is swamp doghobble (Eubotrys racemosa), but these flowers are terminal and the doghobble aren't.
I'm stuck. Linda?
Edit, 10 minutes later: I think I've got it! Now I think it's a Lily-Of-the-Valley Shrub, Pieris Japonica. Here's a picture from M.S. Growers.com. Peterson's was no help at all since this is a shrub that most purchase at nurseries. Time to get back to my regularly scheduled day!
