Is it legal to park on that thin strip of grass between the road and the sidewalk if the tires touch neither the road or the sidewalk?

Mind you, this is in front of my own house.

Thanks.

You must park on the street. Off the street/roadway would be considered the curb or sidewalk. It sounds like you're asking if you can park on part of the curb (not the roadway). Here are some NYS Parking Laws:

1202. Stopping, standing or parking prohibited in specified places.
(a) Except when necessary to avoid conflict with other traffic, or when
in compliance with law or the directions of a police officer or official
traffic-control device, no person shall:
1. Stop, stand or park a vehicle:
a. On the roadway side of any vehicle stopped, standing or parked at
the edge or curb of a street;
b. On a sidewalk;
c. Within an intersection, except when permitted by official signs or
parking meters on the side of a highway opposite a street which
intersects but does not cross such highway;
d. On a cross walk;
e. Between a safety zone and the adjacent curb or within thirty feet
of points on the curb immediately opposite the ends of a safety zone,
unless a different distance is indicated by official signs, markings or
parking meters;
f. Alongside or opposite any street excavation or obstruction when
stopping, standing or parking would obstruct traffic;

I understand most of that, but in Utica you have to be off the road at like 1:00AM

You have to have your car off the road between the hours of 2am & 6am. Otherwise you'll get ticketed. I'm pretty sure it's just a $25 fee to be paid the following day. But after that it increases.

You can not park between your house and side walk. Nor, can you park between the sidewalk and curb. It's a codes violation. It's one of the mayors quality of life concerns when he took office as well. You will get a ticket and might get towed.
