Do I have to take a field sobriety test?

No, and you probably shouldn’t. Meaning in most cases the results are not going to help you. Most people think I’ll just pass these and I’ll go on my way, and very few people who get pulled over for standard field sobriety tests pass the tests. 

The breathalyzer test administered at the police station is the only admissible sobriety test

You are only required to take a breathalyzer test at the police station because that is the one that is admissible. When you got your license you agreed that if they suspected you of driving while intoxicated that you would agree to take this test to prove that you were not intoxicated.

Drivers in New York agree to submit to a breathalyzer test, only at the police station when they receive their driver’s license
