This is a list of covered bridges in New York State.

First, there are 29 historic covered bridges in New York Statemarker. The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation identifies 29 that are historic, and lists the fact that New York has 29 covered bridges in its publications. However, the standard for authenticity is higher for the National Register of Historic Places, and some of the 29 do not meet it. A source for many on this list is the New York Society of Covered Bridges, which has its own definition of what makes a bridge historic or not, and lists 24.

One of the NRHPs, Old Blenheim Bridgemarker, has further been declared to be a National Historic Landmark and also has described by a Historic American Engineering Record. It may be the longest single-span covered bridge in the United States or in the world.
